Excerpt from Eggs and Egg Farms: Trustworthy Information Regarding the Successful Production of Eggs the Construction Plans of Poultry Buildings and the Methods of Feeding That Make Egg Farming Most Profitable

It is not within the province of this introduction to give the formulas of mashes that are used for feeding, but you can make a suitable mash at home by combining palatable ground grains, bran, middlings and blood meal, or you can purchase one of the excellent egg producing mashes that are offered for sale. The latter are mixtures of ground grain, alfalfa (clover) meal and either blood meal, dessicated fish or other animal food. The function of the latter product is to increase the protein content, which in turn is used by the fowl in the for mation of the albumen of the egg. Some breeders omit the blood meal from the grain mixture and place-a hopper of beef scraps in the pen. You are probably aware that fowls require grit or sharp stones, shell material such as crushed oyster shells and pure water.

Feeding for eggs is carefully considered in this book and we take pleasure in referring you to the articles by Mr. Dry den and Mr. Brooks. These gentlemen are both agricultural workers of known experience and ability, and the information they present is reliable.
