Neither a Hen nor an incubator will Hatch Strong Chicks from eggs containing weak germs or from those which have not received proper care. In preparing the nest for the sitting Hen put from three to four inches of Damp Earth or a piece of grass Sod la the Bottom of the nest before the nesting material is put in to provide moisture. When the Hen becomes bloody and before she is i to the nest for sitting site should be dusted with insect powder or sodium fluoride.

The Hen should be moved at night it urn Lite regular laying nest into the nest w Here she is to be set. The latter nest should be in some out of the Way place where Tho Lien will not Bodi Airbed. In order to make it ure that the Hen will continue to stay in the new nest she should be started with one or two China nest eggs of at women who cannot work read or.
