Do Hens Pay?
Ohio Poultry Journal.
The answer I would give is, that it
depends partly on the man and partly
on the hens. From my first year’s
experience alone I would have called
them an unmitigated nuisance. At
the close of> the second year my opin
ion was undecided; now I have come
to the conclusion that,
•'Of all the stock that’s raised by men,
Most money's in the laying hen."
Not including spring chickens, my
flock consists of twenty-seven hens and
two cocks. One of the cocks and two
of the hens are Partridge Cochins,
large eaters, and so far, small layers, so
they increase the average cost of the
flock and reduce the average returns.
They are splendid specimens of the
breed, and were imported from Scot
land last year. The remainder of my
flock are mostly white and brown
Leghorns; twenty-four are laying, the
others are raising chickens. After
close observation I came to the con
elusion that my hens gave the best
results if fed at the rate of one quart
of oats or buckwheat and one quart of
wheat middlings, or an equivolent, to
every ten birds, with plenty of grass
and an abundance of clean water.
They get no meat except what is in
cluded in the table scraps, and I ought
to say that these setaps are always
considered equivolent to an equal
bulk of middlings. That is, if there
are enough of them for the hens, they
get no middlings, the object being to
give two quarts of feed each day to
every ten birds. I think fresh, dean
water, and a clealiness in the food
generally, are of prime consequence if
delicately flavored eggs are wanted.
Now for the results. Last year my
hens averaged ten dozen apiece, dur
ing the time the record was kept, that
is, up to September. They molted
early and continued laying until
Christmas day, when they stopped.
No record was kept after September,
but as my family had what eggs were
needed ior domestic purposes, there
can be no doubt that the hens layed
twelve dozen each. The hen house
did not prove warm enough, and the
hens did not resume laying until the
middle of March. In the last fort
night of that month they gave fourteen
dozen and five eggs; in April, thirty-
eight dozen and one; in the first three
weeks of May, thirty dozen, and they
have done better since, but 1 have not
the memorandum in my office. The
question of profit and loss becomes
very simple In the first place, if you
want eggs only, keep hens that will lay
them. Select them carefully, and if
they will not lay twelve dozen eggs
each in a year get rid of them. Esti
mating on a basts of ten hens, we find
that the product ought to be tao
dozen, worth, at 15 cents a dozen, $18
The daily cost of feeding, is 2 cents, for
one quart of oats and one quart of
middlings. They can be bought for
this, not just now, possibly, but I got
them for that last year and expect to
do so later this year. Two cents a day
is $7.30 a year, which leaves $10.70,
and it may be added that the eggs are
worth more than 15 cents a dozen on
an average the year through. In other
words, my experience is that hens can
be made to yield a profit 0/ $1 per
head each year. I have not made any
allowance for the time and interest on
the money, but the time required for
a small flock of hens is not worth con
sidering. I do not think mine take
five minutes out of each day. Of
course things are arranged conven
iently; there is nothing expensive nor
elaborate. Any sort of man, on an off
day, with a few bunches of lathes and
a pound or two of nails could produce
nil tbe “special features’’ of my hen
