, He recommends that the birds be
given good feeding, a clean range,
plenty of-clean fresh water, and a
clean comfortable house or shelter.
By keeping the birds healthy and
getting them to put oh as much fat
and body weight as they , can, they
can-be brought into lay with a re
serve of flesh and -energy to meet
the demands of the laying season.
Sexual maturity should be' delay
ed in order to give the birds a chance
to put on weight before starting to
lay. Do not give early hatched pul
lets a feed high in protein. Avoid
mouldy or chaffy feeds, or such ma
terial as corn ground with the cobbs.
If the birds fail to grow well, exa
mine them for internal and external
parasites, Maupin says. If mites or
lice are found, clean the roosting
quarters and treat the "birds' at once.
For round worms or "tapeworms, give
the pullets a reliable worm - treat
