Aside from their plea-banter speak- ing voice, Cosby says that pigeons have the following over thickens: they are hardier and heal- thier, need less core and yield more certain Then, of course, there K somethins noble in an occupation that has for its sole purpose the furnishing of cream- ed squab on toast. O It may be well, at this point, to set the reader right on the nature of a squab. A squab is rather a young pigeon. It is a nestling. Baby being by nature indolent and possessed of hard-working parents, stay in their nests from four to weeks, by which time they have become almost full grown. While they are still in the nests they aie squabs, and their meat is of that fatty, mirarulou-ly diges- tible nature which them in- valuable for invalids and delights the epicure. After they leave the and bo- gin to run around, they are no longer squab-, but stags, though they be but five or six week? old. The unpraaic- cd eye cannot tell the stag from the squab. But Cosby assures the Stroller that the pigeon poultryman can. The fatty tissue turns into muscle and leaves a tell-tale hardening of the breast-bone. There is no market for stag meat. Planning to investigate thorough- ly the situation in Yolo county, an all-county taxpayers committee, ap- pointed at the supervisors' budget hearing Tuesdaj, meet in the board of trade rooms at the Court House at 10 a.m. In an all-da) session, the commit- tee, headed P.

That is because pigeon? unlike chickens are monogamous; once hiated. they remain faithful. Each pair, Cosby figures, should produce on the average of seven or'bight pairs of squabs a year (the hens lay two eggs at a time, an almost invariable Co.-by reckons the cost of bring- ing a squab to marketable age, all expenses included, at 25 cents. The average weight of a squab is one pound. The average price of squab i-, 40 cents during the summer and as high as Go cents in winter. So the profit per squab may be reckoned at from 15 to -10 cents. "But of course the pigeon man must watch out for non-productive Cosby said. "The pairs are identified by leg-bands, mates being given the; same number. By keeping record of the various nests it is thus easy to' discover pairs that are not raising at least 12 squabs a year. Non-produc-, tivc pairs can be separated and after' time re-mated, the male being given a new hen and vice versa. Frequently this re-mating brings beneficial re-. suits. If not, the birds nuibt be gotten rid of, for the feeding of too many non-productive birds will make a whole flock unprofitable."
