The male bird Is not essential in egg prodnctlon, his usefulness Is over when the supply of fertile; eggs for the season has been secured. The hens will lay just as many eggs when the.male bird has been removed and the eggs will bo moro suitable for con- sumption, packing or storing! Fur- ther, there is a distinct financial gain to the producer who markets infertile eggs, because the best trade in many cities offers a premium of from one to five cents a dozen for Infertile eggs. Then there Is tho question of feed. H costs money to feed poultry, and I with feed at Its present value, the consumption of feed by. males kept lor no particular purpose is a serious economic waste. The reason for this Is that tho best prices for lire and dressed fowl prevail iu tlio spring and early summer, During the sum- mer the price declines, and by Ihe early fall when many producers de- ''oldo to market their male birds, Mower than'prevailed in tha j spring has to bo accepted; the pro jrtucer tints losing the Amount per pound tho market has declined, plus the value of the feed consumed by the i birds during Ihe Bummer months. This financial loss takes on.a more serious aspect when It Is coupled with Iho amount charged hack by tho whole- saler for the bad ami partially lu'cub later! eggs .thai have been marketed. i Farmers and others selling eggs for market should, therefore, need no urg- ing to kill off, dispose of, or at least remove tho male hinla from the flock after the breeding Reason.
