Different lots of chicks were fed mixtures of grains plus varying, amounts' of meat scrap. Two check lots received no meat scrap or other animal food. Throughout tfie experiment there was a marked difference in both; rate of growth and death rate. In the pens with no meat scrap, practically ell the chicks died, only one remaining at eight weeks, out of two pens of 28 chicks each. Best results were obtained when about 15 per cent of the total ration con- wtthout access to direct sunshitt* develop marked casea of rickets, with si heavy death lossv tmfes» fed cod liver ofl or seme other carrier of Vitamin B» BSsperlences offBrm- en have borne out them experiments, i - Onee the chicks are outroMoors regularly, it isr unnecessary ttf continue the cod Uver ofl.
