MARCH 20 1931 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE IOWA POULTRY MARKET SURVEYED SELLING TIME IS SAID IMPORTANT Expert Believes Many Fail to Hatch Chicks at Best Periods. AMES, March 20--Altho the number of farmers following good poultry practices has increased this year, 50 per cent or less of even the better farmers are hatching- their chicks on time, selling market birds at the right time and keeping records. . These facts were revealed in a survey made by poultry specialists p in the extension service at Iowa State college among 1,900 persons attending the series of spring poultry schools under the direction of W. R. Whitfield. Only 48 per cent of those answer: ing planned to sell cockerels when they weigh from 2 to 3 pounds. The rest will sell them'at the weight of 3 to 4 pounds' when they will make little profit or at the weight of 5 to 6 pounds or heavier when they will lose money. Nineteen per cent reported they would have their chicks hatched early. Forty-three per cent will have their chicks hatched too late to allow the pullets to mature at the p'roper time to sell market birds at a profit. Seventy-nine per cent reported that they are keeping young and old stock separate until fall as compared to 39 per cent in 1930] Seventy-one per cent reported that they will use clean ground for their chicks this year.
