PEN POINTS. Turkeys can be successfully hatched in incubators and raised in brooders. The egg is manufactured at less cost to the country than almost any other staple food product. Nearly all common vegetables are eagerly eaten by fowls. Green vegetables and roots contain little nutriment as compared with grain-from 78 to 96 per cent. of their bulk being water. At the Duke of Westminster's poultry farm, at Eaton Hall, are about 2.000 head of poultry on the farm, comprising Indian Game, Sussex, buff Orpingtons, and brown Leghorns. They are kept on very practical lines, the Indian Game and Sussex Cross being principally kept for table purposes. The poultry are crammed with a mixture of finely-ground oats, wheat, skim milk and fat. The birds are reared in small orchard paddocks, and are extremely healthy and good laying sorts. Fowls are obliged to throw off much of the waste of the body through the lunga. They do not sweat, but instead breathe several times faster than sweated animals when heated. To keep in good health a hen requires nearly seven times the amount of fresh air in propor- tion to it3 size as does a horse. This is a fact well to keep in mind when planning the winter housing of the flock. See that the fowls are not overcrowded in stuffy houses; or cold will soon appear when they come out into the cold air now the morn- ings are chilly. On the other hand see that the roosts are not draughty, as there is the same danger from cold nights. Remember that roomy houses with plenty of fresh air, but no draughts, are what your birds want to keep healthy.
