Crossed WUh I-'i&hlers It was lougli ami terrible. So he beijan Inquiring. He fount! that South American chickens were pretty hud. tough to eat. hard tc raise, 'wor ti.s egg producers. He found further that the first chickens were brought to South America -100 ye.ii-s ano by the Snan- Ish and Portuguese colonists. But they were crossed with Kamecocfcs brought over subsequently for the national sport ol cockflyhling. and when later on in the course of political disturbance it became impossible to import new birds, the local poultry stocks declined in quality and number. Egys were few' and "poor. Fryer* were tough. Import of hatching eggs took too long; import of full- grown chickens was so much trou- ble'that it wao too costly to be practical. South American poultry stocks were going from bad to worse. When the Pan-American inai: returned to the United States with the taste of tougn chicker still in his thront and the memory of the situation vivid in his mind, he started to do something about- it. Ho interested a poultry- man here in the prospect of shipping eggs by air. Hi the fall of 1929 the first American shipment of liatchinr eggs left by air express for Guatemala. Only, two eggs out of were 'broken. The Gautemalan dealer received. ; lhem ; fresh; 'ha.tch- e;l tlieliv''a7Vd" raised 'f, successful crop of chickens that were head and shoulders above the local varieties. Then another brilliant inspiration came. Baby chicks actuallj weigh only about half as much ar the eggs from which they arc hatched. So the shipper and the air line worked out a "cHick hotel." a corrugated cardboard bof fitted with removable floor, water and feed trays, light and air vents. Soon thousands of babj chicks were moving down the airways southward, and arriving without a casualty. TViey seemed to like flying. Taken Out for a Stretch Chirping lustily, they were stored in special compartments in the tails of the big airliners, taken out at night for a stretch, changt of water and feed, to resume the journey next day. Tint the final refinement was yet to .come. New-hatched bab; chicks (Jo not eat for 12 hours Thus, one shipper reasoned, if he could time his hatching and his shipping property, weight couie he still further reduced. A nca "Baby Chick Flying Apartment 'House" was designed of reinforced cardboard, with replacablc floors light and air vents. 25 chicks tc n "room." Shipments, rendered cheaper by this reduction in weight, began to increase. AH the way down tc Rio de Janeiro. 6000 moles south of Miami, went the cheeping little- yellow balls. Others did the 5000- mile stretch to Lima, Peru, and through the Caribbean i:!!andp. To the South American coast went the American clucks, cheeping cheerily and fully enjoying the ride. Must T!c Born on Time Special nicks are now built info the Clipper ships to hold them, nnrt they arc "serviced" at slops just like the rest of the ship ami the other passengers. Now shipments arc not accepted if chicks are more than 12 hours old, each batch being certified as "born such and such an hour on such and such a date." So great is the demand that shipments are now made on a basis of "space available" rather than on orders. Standing reservations are made for regular shippers, and one Puerto Rico poultry farm has GOO chicks going to him on every Clipper departure from Miami. Practically every Caribbean country now has adopted American chickens as standard poultry stock, and at Maracalbo a single firm • advertises "500 fresh-laid American eggs every day." As the stocks begin to flourish locally, intrastatc shipments are beginning to add to the traffic. And today 10,000 cheeping, chirping little passengers leave the United States every week for points south, half a million this year, an all-time record.
