Farm Poultry Flock
The period of peak egg production
is about over, says Prof. R. S. Dear
styne, head of the State College
Poultry Department, and he sug
gests that farm flock owners keep
a close watch for "loafers" in their
hen house. A laying bird will con-1
sume from 7 to 7 1-2 pounds of feed
per month, and at present prices the
hen must produce from 12 to 15 eggs
per month to meet the feed cost
"Chickens normally lay more eggs
during February, March and early
April than at any other time of the
year," Prof. Dearstyne said. "At this
season of the year the poultryman
makes his greatest returns. However,
when the production curve starts de
scending, the drop is usually rapid"
and the profitable practice is to cull
out non- layers, or 'loafers,' almost
The State College leader says that
quirk identification of culls is us
ually the result of observation bark
ed by long experience. Dry, scaly
combs are a clear indication that pro
duction has ceased. It is also well to
cull out exceptionally fat birds, as
well as those in extremely low
weight. Birds which are still heavily
pigmented are, as a rule, poor pro
ducers and should be marketed.
Prof. Dearstyne warns against
culling until a definite drop in pro
duction occurs. "It is unwise to catch
and crate the birds to cull by han
dling each individual." he says.
"Such a practice usually results in
a sharp decline in the production of
those birds of the flock still in heavy
production because of the fright
brought about by cooping and han
He suggests thai culling be done
by "hooking" the culls out of the
flock while they are eating, using a
long wire with a hook on the end.
Some people use a flashlight at night
to handle the birds individually with
out fright to the remainder of the
flock, and this method is also satis
North C.arolina Keeping
