Fluffy baby chicks arc being turned out of the Incubators twice every week, and 2'500 eggs are placed In trays twice a week, Hatching chicks is a most Interest ing business. The Grpnbachs have a Jumosway Incubator, which costs something over $2200. There ore three cabinets, heated by both electricity and hot air. Each cabinet holds several trays and each tray contains 210 chicks. A moisture pan filled with water Is placed underneath each tray, and Is one of the most Important steps In hatching. The eggs are placed in cradle trays in pairs, small end down. The cab inets are closed, and a tempera' ture of 100% degrees Js maintained for a period of 18 days. The eggs are then removed and placed In other trays, which are laid in the upper part of the cabinet, where It requires three more days to com p!ete the hatching process. The machine, has a capacity of 15,000 eggs when the cabinets are full, and the whole number may be automatically turned in about half a minute. A small red light on the outside of each cabinet shows when the heat is on, and a small bell rings automatically If th e heat registers above or below the 100 V4 degrees. Business this year, according to Mr. Gronbach, is below normal, but there is still a brisk demand for chicks, and he does a big bcsiness in custom hatching. . Chicks by parcel post usually arrive at destination with few fatuities, and the care given the tiny travelers is a remarkable commentary on the efficiency of the U. S. mail service.
