A VICTORY FLOCK FOR THE BACK YARD
A small flock of chickens may aid the family with a victory garden to produce
more food for home use, provided the chickens are kept out of the garden and
local regulations allow chickens to be kept.
A back yard with soil unsuitable for gardening may be used for a victory
poultry flock to pinch-hit for a garden and provide fresh eggs to help meet family
Chickens can utilize table scraps, garden waste, vegetable tops, and fresh
lawn clippings, thus cutting the cost of feed. To obtain efficient growth, however,
the chickens must get most of their nourishment from well-prepared mashes or
grain mixtures. Special commercial feeds are available to meet the needs of
chickens of different ages. Under favorable conditions, good chicks will grow
to weigh about 3 pounds on 10 to 12 pounds of feed, not including the green feed
they should get.
If yard space is limited, it may be desirable to use the battery method of raising
chickens, especially if there are neighbors who might object to a full-scale chicken
yard. In the battery method,* the chickens are kept apartment-style, in a corner
of the garage or other outbuilding. Since they do not get a chance to run, battery
chicks usually make efficient use of their feed. Some commercial poultrymen
use the battery system exclusively.

Beginners in a poultry enterprise usually start with baby chicks
mercial hatchery, delivered when from 24 to 72 hours old. It pays I
is known as U. S. pullorum-tested stock, an assurance that the t
come from flocks tested for pullorum disease that is so deadly to
Many reputable hatcheries sell only pullorum-free stock and the pri
any, higher than that of chicks from nontested stock.
As baby chicks will need warmth for comfort, the back-yard flo
need to improvise, or buy, some sort of brooder to take the place o
hen. For the first week or ten days the chicks will be most comi
a temperature, under the hover, of about 90 to 95 degrees. Their 1
will drop about 5 degrees a week until they are featheredand no
artificial heat. Even when daytime temperatures are warm, the
will need some artificial heat at night. Indoor hovers or broo
placed in the cellar, in the garage or other building, where they
tected from wind and rain. Outdoor brooders with wire-floored yi
adapted for brooding and growing chickens.
Brooders and surroundings should be kept sanitary and dry as i
preventing disease. It is good management to remove soiled or we
day or two. A general cleaning and replacement will be needed
week. An inch or more of coarse sand as the base for litter will at
the brooder and it also absorbs moisture. When the sand is covered
straw for litter, the weekly clean-up will include sweeping up the s
carding most of it that is not obviously clean and dry. Soiled sa
removed, after which the surface can be raked smooth, new sam
clean chopped litter replaced.
Chicks need good starting and growing mashes which should be
the chicks in shallow pans or feeders. Growing chickens can eat I
the mash some tine table scraps but not coarse materials, such as v
ings. It is much easier to keep chicks healthy and growing by I
warm, clean, and dry, than to try to cure ailments that develop as
chills, dampness, or spoiled feed.
Before getting too deeply involved in the venture, the family sbou
factors for and against success with poultry. It will want to knoN
ence and equipment required, the space available, some of the cost
whether there will be a member of the family available at all time
chickens the care they will require.
Another consideration is the fertilizer from the chicken house,
that may be used to advantage by those who have gardens.
