Since that time we have induced hundreds of farmers to raise Beckord chicks. ' They Sell Themselves We only had to induce them to raise Beckord chicks once. After that the chicks sold themselves. Delighted customers have come back each year, often bringing friends and neighbors with them. As a resuR, more and more people in this area have been raising Beckord chicks. PEDIGREE SIRED For all this popularity there is a very sound reason. Beckord chicks are produced by systematic breeding from strains which are among America's top layers consistently, year after year. Every Beckord chick is pedigree- sired, backed by egg records which in the majority exceed 300. HIGH EGG YIELD From such breeding come chicks with the ability to live, grow fast, lay early, stay alive in the laying house, utilize their feed efficiently, lay top quality eggs, and produce flock averages up to 250 eggs per hen yearly- NO SKY-HIGH PRICES Yet Beckord chicks are not priced at the sky-high figures you would expect to pay for such quality. They are priced in the same range with the average run of standard-bred chicks. We think Beckord chicks are an outstanding value which will hold your chick expenditure to the minimum, and at the same time make egg profits easier and more certain for you. Your Best Farm Chick Our favorite chickens are Beckords 352 and 452 White Egg Crosses, because of their extreme hybrid vigor, heavy production and excellent egg quality. Close behind is the Beckord Series 300 White Leghorn and the Beckord Black-and-Gold Layer — the latter a beautiful, hardy, fast-laying heavy breed. * Early Order Discounts If your order for Beckord chicks is placed this month, you will receive a discount of $1.00 per 100 pullets and 50c per 100 straight-run. You can take delivery anytime before June 1. Early chicks will pay best this year, so we urge you to get an early start. if you've never raised Beckord chicks, start now and it's ten-to-one you'll raise them again next year!
