M 1 3 Wesf Stote St. Phone 2050 GENERALD^IO Helps Her to Keep On Laying Eggs Housing of Poultry Found Different Than That of Other Livestock. Whether the poultry house is modernistic "or futuristic in its design matters little to the average hen, but she does appreciate "air-conditioning" in the cold winter months and shows her nppreciation by keeping on laying, H. H. Alp, extension poul- tryman, college of agriculture, University o£ Illinois, contends. Housing of poultry for winter is a different problem from housing other farm livestoclf. The amount of heat developed by the birds is so insignificant from the standpoint o£ affecting room temperatures ~ that those housing facilities are best which provide the hens with plenty of fresh air and at the same time protect them against extremely low temperatures. - Production Down. Nearly every flock owner has seen egg production drop off after a severe cold spell. On the other hand, experimental evidence indicates that heated houses with temperatures of 60 degrees Fahrenheit adversely affect the health, body, weighl and egg size of the birds. ; In preventing slumps in egg iroduction following cold spells, he use of heat to maintain an average temperature o£ about 40 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit has been found effective. For rnahy flock owners, temporary heat during cold periods can be provided by the use o£ brooder stoves or some other comrhbn type of room heater. Unit Will A r ary. The kind ol heating unit used will vary with the availability ind price of fuel. In the event of a cheap source o£ fuel, regular heating units might well be installed, such as hot water pipes laid in the floor or hung on one ol the walls. If heat is to be used profitably, in poultry houses, it is neces- ;ary that it be low in cost of operation and not represent a big investment To consider rl more than" a possible supplementary aid in getting winter eggs is a mistake. .
