ROCHER DE BOULE
LOOKS A WONDER
NEW HAZELTON WON THE DECISION
G. T. P. MUST PLACE STATION THERE
Fourteen Miners Now Busy Rushing
Development Work on the Big
Copper Vein.
L. L. Devoin, who recently visited
Rocher de Boule, says recent development at that mine are in line with what
might naturally be expected from it.
Fourteen miners are at work, all on
the upper vein.
Early in the week the ore in the
winze being sunk from the Pemberton
tunnel had widened to upwards of nine
feet of fourteen per cent. ore. The
tunnel being driven west on the vein
from the outcrop on the eastern boundary of the Jackpine claim is coming
into ore, but it has been thoroughly demonstrated that the tunnel is on a
small prong, instead of the main vein.
Surface stripping has uncovered the
point of the split in the vein. The tunnel will be turned into a cross-cut in a
few days. It is expected that from
thirty to forty feet will reach the main
body of the ore, and then it will again
turn to the west, toward the place
where the sinking is going on, and
eventually to a point under the shaft
sunk last winter, and where all the
material removed from a fifty-foot
shaft assayed nineteen and one-half
per cent, copper, and three dollars and
a half in gold and silver.
The mine is showing all the earmarks
of being one of the biggest things in
the province; just how big it is will
only be determined by future work. If
the future work shows up as favorably
as it has for the last few months, it is
freely predicted that the stock will go
to par before Jan. lst next.
W. P. MURRAY
IS OPTIMISTIC
Claims G.T.P. Will Spend Necessary
Money to Get a Station for
South Hazelton
W. P. Murray arrived home on Wednesday night, after spending a couple
of months in Ottawa and vicinity in
the interests of the Grand Trunk Pacific Town and Development Co's town-
site at South Hazelton. He declares
v. hat that townsite has won a complete
victory from start to finish; that the
G.T.P. will prepare plans immediately
for bringing the grades and yards up
to standard at that point, and that the
commission will approve of them immediately. As soon as the plans are
approved, the Grand Trunk will make
public the exact location of the depot,
and streets will be graded and more of
the property cleared. The G.T.P., he
says, will do all in its power to make
that the main townsite. Mr. Murray
also states that President Chamberlain
is most emphatic that there will be no
such thing as a compromise with the
New Hazelton interests. He looks for
the announcement of the G.T.P. to be
made any day, and not later than the
end of this week.
BASEBALL AT
PAGET'S CAMP
A very enthusiastic baseball game
was played on Sunday between Paget's
camps, Nos, 3 and 4. Camp 3 was victorious by 6 runs to 3. Tne batteries
were Graham p, Franklin c; camp 4
B. W. Paget p, "Snowball" c, Graham struck out nine men in the four
innings which he pitched, and allowed
only three hits. The combined teams
of the two camps will make a strong
combination. Tne game was witnessed
by a large crowd of spectators. One
player said that the Pea-Vine League
champs will have to look after their
laurels when they stop off to play the
Paget teams on their way to meet.

for Sunday.
JACK AUSTIN INJURED
On Saturday afternoon little Jack
Austin while playing with some other
boys, sliding down the gravel bank on
the upper bench, lost his balance and
rolled backwards down the hill. His
head struck a sharp stone which fractured the skull. When picked up he
was still conscious, though very weak
through loss of blood. He was taken to
a neighbors house and friends did what
they could for him until the doctor
could be summoned and the little chap
taken to the hospital. It was necessary
to operate on the boy's head, but he
pulled through all right and he has
sinoe been gaining rapidly and there is
every hope that he will recover completely.

DOMINION DAY
BALL PROGRAM
Prince Rupert and Hazelton on Sunday
and Monday���Horse Racing and
Foot Racing, Boxing, Etc.
Ottawa, June 20.-The late Judge
Mabee's decision in the famous Hazelton station case was re-affirmed today
by the railway board. The judgment
was written by Commissioner McLean
and concurred in by Assistant Chairman
Scott and Commissioner Mills, who sat
on the case.
Commissioner McLean in framing the
order which regards the relation of a
station at New Hazelton, confirms the
previous order of the board and gives a
succinct story of the long-drawn out
fight. His order practically in full, follows:
"By the board's order of December
19, 1911, the railway company was ordered to construct a station on lot 882,
Cassiar district, British Columbia. The
application of the railway for the approval of the location of station grounds
and station on lot 851, was in terms of
the said order, refused and the railway
company was restrained bv said order
from locating a station at that point.
Subsequently on the petition of the G.
T. P. railway company, the matter was
taken before the Govemor-in-Council,
and as a result the governor-in-council
issued an order in the matter recinding
the order of the board and stating:
Govemor-in-Council's Order
"It was made to appear that several
different interests directly affected by
the location of the station in question
had not had an apportunity to set forth
their respective views as would seem
just ard desirable, and that therefore
in their judgment the aforesaid application of Robert Kelly and of the G.T.
P. should be remitted to the board of
railway commissioners for Canada for
their consideration and that all parties
interested in the matter should have
made further application to the board
of railway commissioners of Canada."
"The matter was remitted to the
council and it was said that it was remitted for considerations and that parties interested in the matter may give
such further application to the board
as they may deem advisable.
"A report was heard at length by the
board from June 4 to June 6. A large
amount of material was submitted, the
exact value of which from this standpoint of evidence is questionable.
On Lot 882
"As to the provision of the original
order requiring the location of a station
on lot 882, after careful consideration
I am unable to see that this should be
varied. The views expressed by the
late chief commissioner in his judgment
are as pertinent to the location of this
station now as when uttered. It is a
situation which the railway has created
for itself, and for the board to assent
to the modification of this teim of the
order would make it an assenting party
to an injustice.
"In the original hearing the views of
the residents of the town of Hazelton
were not to any extent before us, nor
was there developed in the record the
way in which their interest from the
standpoint of traffic convenience were
affected by the board's restraining the
railway company from building on lot
851. A considerable amount of evidence
and opinions was presented in the rehearing in regard to the highway
methods of approach to the proposed
station on lot nine, spoken of as South
Hazelton.
"Statements were submitted as to the
cost of bridging Bulkley river. There
were also expressions of opinion as to
the intention of the provincial government in this respect. These expressions
were not, however, sufficiently definite
to permit one to reach any conclusion,
as the bridge, if built, would ultimately -*ause the building of highways.
Convenience of Residents
"The residents of the present town
of Hazelton want the station at some
point nearer them. Lot 851 would be
of greater convenience to them from
a traffic standpoint.
"The original plan for the location at
South Hazelton, which is before us,
shows that the railway in the layout of
the station grounds and sidings, departed from practically everything which it
had considered as a standard from the
standpoint of engineering and operating
practice.
"Had the board required the railway
to locate under the engineering and
operating conditions which it itself
chose in this case, there undoubtedly
would have been the most strenuous
objection on the part of the railway
when called upon by the railway board
to approve such station site as it
may deem convenient for the people of
Hazelton, the board cannot and will not
be oblivious of the standard which the
railway has chosen for itself.
Dominion Day celebration will be the
biggest event in the northern interior
this year.   The big program will be run
off in old Hazelton, and will be spread
over two days and a night.   The Prince
Rupert ball team will be the big drawing card.   The  coast  boys  will arrive
; here on Saturday night,  and they will
j be accompanied by some fifty support-
: ers,   and   maybe   more.     On   Sunday
' afternoon the first game will be played
i and the fans will have an opportunity
of sizing up  the  coast  ball   players,
] about whom so much has been heard,
and of whom so much is expected.    On
: Monday, Dominion Day,  there will be
J horse races and foot races, as well as
other sports.    In   the   afternoon   the
: second ball game will be played.
At night the scene of attraction will
be the Assembly Hall, where a program
l of boxing, wrestling, etc., will be pulled
[Off.
The   local   ball   players   have   been
putting in some hard work on the dia-
I mond, and they have  every confidence
that the cracks from the coast will not
[ be able to put anything over on them.

THE PASSING OF
THE OLD GUARD
THE MOST PROMISING OF MINES
IS THE HARRIS BOYS PROPERTY
Ezra Evans Died in the Hospital -Only
Two of the First Arrivals
Now Remain
Over Eight Hundred Feet of Underground Work Done="Large Quantity of Rich Ore on the Dump*-
Are Ready To Make Regular Shipments���Development Work Continues
One of the most promising mining
properties, not only in the Hazelton
camp, but in the province, is the Harris
Mines, Ltd., on Nine Mile mountain,
about seven and a half miles from
town. It is not only promising from
surface showings, but from underground
al miles the road is in excellent condition for even heavy freighting, and at
the present time the Provincial Government has a force of fifteen men busy
extending the good work. A full sized
wagon read is being constructed, and
this season it will reach almost, if not
works, from the amount of ore actually j quite, to the Harris property,   and the
boys have decided that they will cut a
wagon road this fall from the workings
down to connect with  the government
road, so they will be able to make continuous shipments all winter.
The climb up the hill, while about a

trail  right  to
the camp, which is ideally situated upon
a level piece of ground in the heart of
a virgin forest of heavy timber.    The
view afforded is particularly pleasing,
THE TELEGRAPH SERVICE
taken out and piled on the dump, and
from the amount of ore actually blocked out.
The Harris Mines have a future of
unlimited possibilities. Situated as they
are upon the west side of the mountain
and about half way down the hill, and .thousand feet or more,
looking directly across Two Mile creek one, and there is a fine
headwaters to the Silver Standard property, it is one of the most favorable
spots for mining operations. On the
property are three large, well-defined
veins carrying high grade ore, the most
of which is ready for shipment as soon
as mined. On all sides and in every
direction is a mineral-bearing country,
of which the American Boy seems to be
the hub. That there should be an immense body of ore on this property is
only reasonable to expect, and it was
expected by the Harris boys when they
were prospecting and located these four
claims for themselves, and when they
decided to become mine operators and
develop the property themselves.
From the surface Harris Mines would
impress anyone. It impressed the Harris boys and Jack MulL-n. They started in to work, and they have either
done the work themselves or they have
superintended the work, and the result
has been that they have accomplished
more and at less expense than any
other property in the district. The
property is also as easy to work as any,
and easier than most.
For the past year the Harris Mines
have been undergoing steady development, and when the Herald man visited
the property last Saturday he was
agreeably surprised to find the amount
of work that had been accomplished.
The trip out to the property is one of
the most pleasant.    For the first sever-
I
The telegraph service for the
past two or three weeks has been
simply rotten. It has been so
bad that it is beyond the point of
where patience can be called upon. Instances are known where
it has taken seven days for a
message to come from Vancouver
and th'* answer to be sent back,
although replied to at once-
There is evidently something
wrong that is not the fault of the
elements. Fire and wind have
been blamed for a good deal, but
there is a strong suspicion of
something else. At least it is
high time the conditions were investigated and improvement made
immediately.
and the surroundings are very restful
to the men after a day's hard work in
the shaft or tunnels.
Vein No. 1 is a little below the
cabins. On this there is a shaft 27 feet
deep, and there is also a great deal of
surface work, which shows the vein to
be strong and regular, with lots of good
ore. It is on this lead that the management propose to direct their attention in the very near future. In fact
this will be the next development work
undertaken, and it will be started this
fall in time to enable them to get to a
good depth on the vein and get things
in shape so that the work can be continued in the winter. This vein will be
a big producer, and by next spring it
will be one of the big shippers.
No. 2 vein is another big, strong vein
which has been uncovered for several
hundred feet on the surface, and into
which there are several big open cuts.
Most of the ore found there is very
high grade and ready for shipment.
Last winter a cross cut tunnel was also
driven and cut the ore at a depth of
150 feet. In the very near future this
tunnel will be continued through the
hill for a distance of about 400 feet to
tap the upper vein at a depth of 500
feet. By cross-cutting in the opposite
direction the No. 1 vein will also be
tapped at very little less depth than the
No. 2. Thus all three veins will be opened up and worked from the same
tunnel. There is at least one small
vein showing on the surface upon which
no work has yet been done.
No. S vein is the one on which the
management has been directing all its
attentions since early spring. This
lead on the surface is not as large as
the other two, but there is a high grade
of ore and it is exceptionally promising.
Besides the usual surface work and
open cuts, a shaft has been sunk to a
depth of 127 feet, and from that level
they have drifted to the north over 100
feet, and, while there are a couple of
irregularities, the vein has never been
lost, and very rich ore has been, and is
PRESS OPINIONS OF HAZELTON TOWNSITE CASE
Vancouver reports state that the
press throughout the Dominion have
conceded a complete victory to New
Hazelton, and there is a general note of
rejoicing over the fact that the Rail-
Commission upheld the decision of the
late Judge Mabee. It was commonly
admitted that had the commission reversed that decision the usefulness of
the commission would have been greatly damaged through loss of faith in
them  by  the  people.    The  people  of
Canada are to be congratulated on having a Railway Commission that will not
lay down to political and corporation
influences, and it is well known that
the strongest influences were brought
to bear. In future the people of New
Hazelton will have nothing to fear from
the Grand Trunk Pacific, in case that
corporation decides to carry the fight
any farther. It is hoped, however,
that the railway company will accept
the decision as final,  and devote  their
attention and money to the development of the first section east of Prince
Rupert that will give them any tonnage.
To carry the fight further will do the
railway company more harm by holding
back the country, than it will any of the
people interested or living here. One
town and one station is all that is wanted by anyone. Any additional town or
station will split the business and the
whole district suffers, with the railway
company as the greatest sufferer.
The Hazelton District suffered a
: great loss on Sunday night when Ezra
j Evano passed away at the hospital af-
I ter a very brief illness. With his death
the district loses one of the very few
j of the old guard that was left. He has
been a well known figure here for the
last forty odd years, having come in
during the ;first rush to the Omineca
gold fields. He spent his summers in
the Omineca where he conducted a store
as well as worked his placer claims on
Manson Creek, and for a great many
years he has spent his winters in Hazelton. Together with Jas. May and
Chas. McKinnon the late Mr. Evans
made up the old guard and were the
real pioneers of the district, and so far
as is known they are the only ones left
of the thousands who joined that great
stampede to the Omineca.
The late Mr. Evans has not been able
to go to the gold fields for the last two
years, and although he has not been an
invalid he has felt the effect of his
years and could not get around so well.
Since last winter he has suffered from
spells of dizziness and these gradually
became worse until Friday night he had
a bad attack and was taken to the hospital on Saturday. The doctor gave as
the cause of his death hemorrhage of
the brain.
The funeral was held on Wednesday
afternoon at 2 o'clock and interment
took place in the Hazelton cemetery
where Rev. J. Field conducted the service. A large number of people followed the remains to their last resting
place as a mark of the general respect
in which the deceased was held.
The late Ezra Evans was a Welch-
man and came to Canada in 1858,
coming to Hazelton 10 years later. He
was 63 years of age and was unmarried
being, taken out. About a hundred ft.
from shaft on the surface is shown a small
fault in the vein, and this has been encountered in the drift, and the vein
picked up again and found to be stronger and richer than ever. The drift is
also being run to the south, but as yet
they have gone only a few feet. The
company now propose to continue the
shaft down to the 20Q foot level and
then drift both ways from that, wich
the expectation that they will find even
richer ore and a wider vein, as every--
I thing indicates this result.
At the present time the ore being
taken out of Harris Mines is of the
same character as that in the Silver
Standard, viz., galena, grey copper
carrying high silver values, and here
and there yellow copper values. The
gold values are small. The boys expect
to run into a shoot of ore the same as is
being worked on the Standard.
As stated above, Harris Mines are
one of the most promising. The boys
have a total of eight hundred feet of
work done, and they have enough ore
already on the dump, and ready to take
out, to start shipments and to continue
them every month. They are now
sorting and sacking ore, and the very
first opportunity offered they will send
a hundred tons or more to the smelter. THE OMINECA HERALD, JUNE 28. 1912

New Hazelton Station
New Hazelton has been awarded a station for the second time
by the Railway Commission, and
there is no other station in this
terested in the latter town are
busy making plans for its immediate development. The prolonged legal actions brought by,
rival townsites has kept back the
development of New Hazelton,
but from now on greater efforts
than ever will be made, and all
the interests will be working
hand in hand for one purpose-
making New Hazelton the big
prosperous town that nature intended it should be.
The various contractors completing the line from the Skeena
crossing to New Hazelton are
making great progress, and the
bridge men say that there will be
nothing to stop the rails coming
right through to New Hazelton
as soon as they get across the big
bridge at the crossing, and that
structure will be completed the
middle of July. Thus it may
safely be predicted that within
two months trains will run into
New Hazelton.   and  there does

was plaved between the Telkwa regulars and juniors. The regulars came

their grey shirts and pants with dark

opened a can of speed in the early
stages of the contest that took their
older adversaries' "goat" and the first
two sections showed the juniors leading
3-0. Coming into the stretch, however,

TO THE PUBLIC
THE FINAL decision of the Railway Commissioners, confirming the
location to the railroad station at NEW HAZELTON, puts the final
stamp of approval on New Hazelton as the only townsite in the district. The insane attempts by some parties, who, to further, what
they considered, their own interests, to have the town removed from
its natural location as decided by the late Judge Mabee, already resulting in business stagnation and the loss of thousands of dollars to
the business men of Hazelton, besides setting the development of the
district back by many months, have now met with complete failure.
NEW
HAZELTON
To those who may
still have a
lingering doubt
The railway commissions have intimated that the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company have, on
every occasion, fought against providing station facilities at points
with gradients and curvatures that
obtain at South Hazelton, claiming
that traffic could not be handled at
such points. To handicap the great
trade of the Hazelton district in
such a manner as this is the height
of absurdity.
Anything the G.T.P.
may say
in the matter
should not be taken seriously, as it
is obviously for purposes that have
nothing whatever to do with the
creation of a town in the district.
The future of Hazelton demands a
point with the very best facilities
for large yardage, and a chance to
expand, in view of the large local
mineral tonnage, and an early movement of coal tonnage from Ground
Hog. These facilities New Hazelton
possesses to the greatest degree.
Stand on the South Hazelton bluff and imagine
the absurdity of creating such facilities there
The Commissioners also state that if the G.T.P. propose to put a station
there, they would have to conform to the standard laid down by themselves.    Prominent engineers give it as their opinion that such is impossible.
The owners of New Hazelton are prepared to act in a liberal manner
toward the old town business men, who feel that the coming of the railway necessitates the removal of their business to the new town.    The
railway will easily reach New Hazelton by September lst.
Get in line for the new town. Boost for
the Ground Hog Railway, the Mines
and a large, united town

tween the Crossing and this town
elicited the information that all
the work will be completed and
that there will be nothing to delay the laying of the rails. It
will be a great day for New
Hazelton when the first train
pulls into this depot as the town
and the townpeople have been
materially injured by the particularly unsatisfactory treatment
received at the hands of the companies hauling freight and passengers.
The first word received hereof
the decision of the Railway Commission on the location of the
station came by way of Aider-
mere to Chicken Lake and then
by telephone. The message was
brief, but it was enough and almost immediately the entire town
took on new life.    The townsite
question is settled, at least in the
minds of the people here. They
are all satisfied with the decision
and it is generally conceeded that
the railway company will not attempt to incur the expenditure of
a half million dollars to put a
station on an impossible townsite.
The people here are satisfied and
and they have already started in
to make preparations for a per-
manent business. Orders for
goods have been given and plans
are being laid for increasing
stocks and adding new lines.
That New Hazelton is to be a big-
town is a certainty, and that its
growth will be rapid is also sure.
The rails will be here in a very
few weeks. The mines are rapidly developing and more men
are being constantly added to the
forces, so that by the time the
snow flies three or four of the
properties will be shipping ore
from this point and also getting
all their supplies from this point.
The future prospects are of the
very brightest and the people
are optimistic.

The "terrible" swamp about
which so much has been said by
\ the advocates of other townsites
is really a mith. While there isi
considerable ground under water
at the present time, it is not a
swamp as it is all running water.
It has been discovered that the
source of the swamp is Five Mile
Creek and a very small expenditure will divert the creek and the:
entire district now under water
will he as dry as any top hill.
The natural drainage is excellent.
The Five Mile Creek water can
be very easily piped and used as
a temporary water supply for the
town. Thus the greatest drawback that New Hazelton has, in
the eyes of her enemies, has been \
overcome and this is once more!
the ideal town.
Word was received in town
on Monday trom the Skeena
Bridge that the work would be
completed and trains running a-
cross the big structure by the
fifteenth of July. This is a couple
of weeks earlier than expected'
and it will get the rails into New
Hazelton that much sooner. In-

Pat Higgins, of Rossland, who is interested in some claims on Four Mile
mountain, near the Kinman property,
arrived in town on Saturday night, and
states that Mr. Kinman will be here
shortly, and that he will let a contract
to drive a cross-cut tunnel on his property for a distance of 400 feet. Mr.
Higgins will be around for some time.
cross cut did not find it. A couple of
weeks ago Supt. Haskins put a couple
of men to work cross-cutting in another
direction and on Friday afternoon last
they broke through the quartz and
struck a foot of good soiid ore. This
has b_en improving since and the man-
agment are more than satisfied.
Prince Rupert
On the Silver Standard property they
they are taking out ore at the rate of
150 tons a month.    Angus Stewart was
there  on   Wednesday   and   saw   them
bring up twenty tons.    They shoot the
ore about three times a week, and when !
it is remembered that  this stuff runs |
around  the  three  hundred dollar per'
ton mark it will be seen that the dump
accumulating money very fast.
The miners working on the winze in
the Pemberton tunnel en the Rocher de
Boule have been working on a record
ore shoot since last week. The ore
showed about six feet wide when they
started and when visited by L. L. DeVoin last Friday it had widened out to
over nine feet and all clean ore of the
same class as found in the shaft some
three hundred feet away. Rocher de
Boule is proving to be one of the great
bonanzas. Every foot of work done
opens up more ore. There is serious
talk now of starting at a very early
date on the continuation of the tunnel
on the lower vein and cross cut the big
vein at a depth of about twelve hundred
feet. This tunnel would also cross cut
all the other veins on the property.
Notice is hereby given that the
partnership heretofore subsisting between the undersigned as
contractors and carriers, under
the firm name of Beirnes & Mulvany, in the Town of Hazelton,
County of Atlin, Province of
British Columbia, has been this
day dissolved by mutual consent.
All monies due to the said partnership are to be paid to George

Why is it that the baby chick
is so hard to keep alive ? No
other baby is so hard to raise.
If we could attribute the cause
to climatic conditions, we might
feel more at ease, but the same
state of affairs exists in the south
as in the north.
In the absence of more detailed
facts, we must acknowledge that
a baby chick is very delicate.
Barring all outside conditions
that might affect the life of the
chick which take place prior to
its exclusion from the shell, there
are two very important factors,
viz: warmth and wholesome food.
To be successful we must guard
against too much warmth, too
much cold, and too much food.
There are, of course, other things
that have a direct bearing on the
life of a chick, more especially
during incubation, and also in
the feeding of the parent stock,
but even when all things are just
right, the chick requires the
most careful handling.
A chick may be hatched with
chronic indigestion caused by-
running the temperature of your
machine too high, which will
naturally result in "baking" the
yoke, making it hard to digest.
Such a chick is extremely hard
to raise, even under most favorable conditions. In the first place
it will not begin to eat at the
proper time, and by the time it
does learn to eat, it will be so
weak that its organs cannot handle even the plainest food. Next
comes constipation, and you may
just as well try to reverse the
earth as to try to raise that chick.
Chicks that are very weak
when hatched, caused by a low
temperature, should be fed early,
as early as they show signs of
eating, even if the first day, but
preferably something light- dry
bread as an instance, or corn
bread. They seldom get stronger by starvation, and if not given
nourishment quickly, will die of
weakness, in fact may be too
weak to eat if made to wait until
the usual time to start feeding.
Forty-eight hours after hatching is usually long enough to wait
for the first food for a lively
chick. Good grain food is all
right to feed to strong chicks,
but most commercial mixtures
contain too great a portion of
corn. This applies equally to
scratch food for grown chickens.
It may be all right for raising
broilers, but corn is not good for
baby chicks unless baked well
into dry corn bread. A good
grain and seed mixture, minus
| the corn, except a very small per
centage, will work alright. To
bring up baby chicks requires almost constant attention. The hen
devotes all her time to her chicks
and if you want to succeed, try
to imitate her.
After their little meal is eaten,
their natural tendency is to huddle together and peep. They
wait for the natural mother-
brooding which they are entitled
to but never get. Bear this in
mind,   whether  you   keep   your
chicks out doors or in the house, j
when they have eaten, especially
when very young, they must be
put back into the brooder. They
will never learn it until you teach
them, and even then will not go
back as often as they should;
yet lock them in for a moment
until they get warmed up, and!
at once they become contented.
Being babies, they naturally re-
quire sleep, and it is this eating
and sleeping at various intervals
that makes them grow and gain
strength. Don't let them stand
around and huddle for warmth.
Put them back into the brooder,
if you have to do it a dozen times
a day. Put them back each time
they tire of scratching, and they
will come forth with renewed
vigor for their next round.
Always have sand under your
litter; it gives them strength to
stand and scratch in it, and they
will not get weak on their feet
nearly as quickly as when they
are raised on a board floor with
nothing but litter to scratch in,
unless you are feeding a great
deal of corn, which also causes
leg weakness.
Three, four and five meals a
day is not too much, if you don't
give too much at a time, in fact
where you have a great many
together you have to feed little
at a time, otherwise they would
have it all eaten up in a few
moments. The idea is to keep
them busy as much as possible
and avoid standing still. The
reason that chicks brought up in
brooders are hard to raise is because they lack sufficient exercise.
They are overfed rather than underfed, and have not the opportunity to run it off.
After ten days a little green
stuff should be given each day,
and also, after a week, some animal food. Bran is also a good
addition, but teach them to eat
sparingly at first, and always include charcoal to prevent loosening of the bowels.
Avoid artificial heat as much
as possible, but have your tireless
brooder sufficiently warm, and
keep enough chicks together to
prevent crowding for warmth.
Never, under any circumstances,
let chicks stand outside of the
brooder, or hover and crowd together for warmth. With an
empty crop and food lying around
they will not huddle together,
but when filled up, and not yet
accustomed to going to their nest
for warmth, they will naturally
huddle together and this means
death. They need rest and plenty of it, and should never be
made to stand up to get their
backs up against the blanket.
They will not smother nearly
as easily as they will die from
exposure.
