HOW AMD WHAT TO FEED. Eggs Are the object. Prices the incentive- ' Feed the method of attainment. Give abundant animal food no"’-Green-cut bone is the best eggproducer. Green bone is within the reach of every poultry keeper. With a bone-cutter purchased, the cost of the bone is no more than, if as mush as, pollard.

Where it is difficult to get freshcut bone regularly in small quantities, the following - method of keeping lai'gv lots should be tried : Get fresh-cut bone and mix thoroughly with good, lino pollard, taking care that every paeticle is well covered.

Put plenty of pollard on the top of the lot- ami it will keep for some time.

The method is old. though not as applied to hone ; it is the same as that adopted hy the housewife in keeping - her suet hy [jutting - it in the 11 out’ bin.

The amount of green bone to bo given should be. about an ounce per bird every second day.

While green bone is the best, containing in proper proportion the ingredients to make the shell and content! of the egg, it is not the only good animal food. Lean meat of any kind is an invaluable egg food ; dried blood, beef scrap, meat meal, dried ground bone, all are invaluable foods.
