COLE'S HOT BLAST HEATERS
Where Your Hardware Needs Are Supp!icd Satisfactory
"THE QUALITY HOUSE"
Phone 43 McKinney, Texas
Clarence Hawkins has the reputa
tion of being the fastest chicken dress-
er in the world. It seems incredible
that a man could kill, pick, clean and
drop a chicken into a frying pan ready
cook in a minute. But of the thou
sands of people who have watched this
champion chicken dresser work at the
Chicago stock yards poultry show, It is
well understood that the job is a mat-
ter of seconds. At this poultry show
every year hundreds of people hold
their watches on him, and his quickest
time has been 11'a seconds. He is con
ftdent that he will reduce the record to
10 seconds this year.
Every move has been studied out
and numbered. Movements of the
hand and fingers have been reduced in
number as an automobile manufactur-
er reduces the number of parts in the
construction of his machine. The wat-
er into which the bird is dipped to
loosen its feathers is warmed to an ex-
act temperature as indicated by a ther-
mometer, and when the big hand of
the champion sweeps down over one
side of the carcass the entire plumage
is cleaned off, and next, in the twink-
ling of an eye, the other side is clean.
No man can see the operation and at
the same time keep track of the second
hand on his watch.
Hawkins acquired the knack of
cleaning, splitting open and finishing
in 'cleaning fish, lie lives on Brown's
Lake In Wisconsin and owns a summer
it "i t on tho shore of the lake. Ho al-
i' has ji poultry farm which is operat-
ic! to supply chicken dinners for the
hot. I. The place isn't lar from Hal-
bai'h's While ltock Farm at Waterford,
and is something of a mecca to which
poultrymen who own autos drive from
Milwaukee and Chicago.
There are more worthwhile ideas on
Hawkins' poultry plant than any other
commercial farm in the two states
Labor is reduced to a minimum on the
plant, the same as movements are re-
duced to a minimum in the poultry
If Hawkins wants to coal his hot
water heater In the feed house, he
pulls a shuttle in a coal pipe and the
coal pours into the top of the stove
like grain running out of a funnel at
the bottom of a bin. The watering
pans in each pen hang from a stop-

cock in a continuous pipe, and as the
chickens decrease the weight of the
pan by drinking the water, the pan
slightly rises like a regulator on an in-
cubator, and water pours into It until
the increased weight shuts off the cur-
The supply of fresh air in the build-
ings has been reduced to a science of
ventilation. The windows have double
glass in them and the front Is tight In
winter except for the Intake of fresh
nlr. There are King ventilators in tho
roof. In summer a 2-foot square open-
ing in the north side, under Ihe drop-
pings boards In each pen, keeps the
laying house cool.
The droppings boards are scraped
each morning and the droppings
thrown In a boat that travels on an
overhead track the length of the
house. This laying house wan built
five years ago and the material cost
about $1,050. Mr. Hawkins is a me
chanic as well as a chicken man and
owner-manager of the hotel. When he
hires nine men he joins in and does
the work of three more, so he has the
labor of twelve. Perhaps the laber on
this building would represent $1,000
There is a feed room in the center
and three pens to either side. Last
winter 1,200 layers were carried in one
of the 3-pen wings. From October 1
to Juno 1 they had laid approximately
130,000 eggs. That isn't a high yield,
yet during the winter months Hawkins
averaged to sell $900 worth of eggs a
month. The feed cost $300 and the la-
bor $100 per month.
The house is lighted with electric
lights for the purpose of artiflicial illu-
mination to increase the egg yield dur-
ing the short winter days. Hawkins
would not again be without the lights.
He burns them only in the morning,
however, both morning and afternoon
lighting having proved to be an over-
dose of a good thing.
As a result of heavy winter laying,
the White Leghorn females were molt-
ing early this season. The crop of
chicks was not as satisfactory as the
owner would like. He said that .it
seemed to be a general complaint
among poultrymen in tbe locality. A
number of them had come to inquire
what was the trouble with their chicks
this year. There seemed to be nothing
especially wrong, but the birds didn't
seem to have the enthusiasm of life
characteristic of thrifty chicks whose
bodies grow as fast as their wings and
whose undaunted energy is manifested
by their ability to hold up a good
strong pair of wings. Hawkins said
that he believed the trouble was due to
lack of green stuff and not enough
We believe that a greater distinction
should be made between layers and
breeders, and birds kept for breeding
purposes should not be put under
lights and encouraged to lay out the
best that is in them prior to the season
when their eggs are to be reserved r
hatching purposes. As for green stutt
and animal protein, unquestionably
Hawkins is right. Chickens are not
wholly granivorous, or herbivorous, or
carnivorous, but a combination of all
three, and live and eqj on grain, grass-
es and meat.
You cannot grow chickens success-
fully without grass and green sprouts
lo supply bulk any more than you can
feed and maintain a cow without clov-
er hftv or silage. Dope and pills do not
compensate the loss of this bulky food.
People who want to suece«*H with
poultry must study these problems.
The measure for every man's success
is lfi • ability to think for himself, not
his capacity for reading, absorbing and
copying. Hawkins has thought out
things for himself, and his plant is dif-
ferent from any other plant. Hawkins
has 5,000 little chicks. When a storm
suddenly breaks or they are scared
nnd run for the coop, before they reach
the little 8xl0-Inoh opening in the side
of the brooder house they run under a
2x3-foot board canopy 10 inches above-
ground. Thev feel the security and
protection of this covering and do not
jam and crowd into the house.
For 15 feet beyond the brooder
house the partitions between the pens
are made of boards, not wire, 4 feet
high, to break the wind In the early
• The cockerels are used as 2-pound-
ers for the hotel's summer trade, and
chicken dinners are a specialty. The
'nulaid" winter eggs of the pullets nre
sold to the Soo Line and the Santa Fe
railroad. They bring five to six cents
a dozen above the highest Chicago
quotations. That is the contract.
Hawkins had 1R.000 eggs capacity in
two mammoth incubators, and added
24,000 more this season. He figured
that he would sell some chicks and got
out a circular, but before he could do
any advertising he had booked orders
for his entire supplv of 70,000 baby
chicks. American Poultry Journal.
