Avoid feed waste by -...-- full. 2. To reduce mortality: Control feather picking by covering extra windows to avoid excessive light, avoiding crowding and feeding a balanced ration. Prevent coccidio- sis by using deep litter--deep enough to stay fairly dry. Screen the house against mite-carrying sparrows and chick - killing rats with half-inch poultry wire. Control eukosis by keeping the young birds segregated from older birds --the brooder house at least 400 !eet from the henhouse. Keep the )oultry house doors closed at night to keep out foxes and other varmints. Start the litter at least hree inches deep. Range the birds on clean ground. Buy only pullorum-free clucks. Save Labor 3. To save labor: Use deep litter .hat seldom needs cleaning. Self feed all feed in troughs. When the chickens are on summer range, use automatic waterers and storage feeders that will hold a week's supply of feed. Fill the feeders once a day. Provide summer shel- .ers. · · · ' . . . 4. To push the chickens to early maturity and production: Buy sexed chicks or separate the sexes early. Self-feed all feed, self- feeding mash to eight weeks of age. Then add corn and oats in another feeder trough. Substitute a protein concentrate for the mash as the chicks begin to eat the grain. They should be eating grain well at 9 weeks of age. by the group. After playing games, led by David and Diane Luscomb, a lunch was served by Mrs. Luscomb. The next meeting of the club is to be March 15 at the home of Sherril Pitkin.
