As 'to winter feeding, this is per-  linps lhe secret of winter eggs. If  the birds ars, not fed so -as io mule?  ' up for what they are unabIc*to get  ow'nu,"  to  iho snow covering the  ground and the lack of'insect Me-,  it then becomes nearly impossible  to get eggs atall, anyway in paying   numbers.   If fane   open������   the-  crop   of  a   ibiird ait  largo  during  the isummor months, he will   find  'that   it  is composed  of    insects,  green Stuff and grit,  and unless  they have had an opportunity of ,  going where grain has been spilt,  ' or  left about, the crop does not  contain a1   large amount of grain  >->r iseeds, but insects -of all sorts  and-green food. ,It becomes there  fore- necessary, during winter  to  make up their loss in sc.,oe way or  another, and this can only be done  by  the feeding of .cabbage, turnips, .mangolds; or cut'cTover hay  'for,green food, while the loss     of  insect food must ;b eraade up by  the giving of moat in some form,  ,  which can be done by'feeding beef  scraps or meat meal.   These have  to   be bought I   am  aware,     but  without tham you cannot got eggs,  ancl without-eggs you are keeping  '  your birds through the winter with  .out any return at all.   ���������'  ,   There  are (many further factors ���������  wh'ch  are used by the successful  ��������� poultry keeper but the above are  some of the most important for the  production  of epgs.
