Feeding Poultry in Winter

By Unknown Author - Naples Record

18 February 1891

Fowls are omnivorous in their natural state and require some portion of animal food. On a wide range in summer they will provide this for themselves, but when in confinement, and especially during cold weather, laying hens require to be fed at least twice a week meat in some form. When the flock is small the scraps from the table and kitchen may suffice, but if the number be large it will pay to buy livers adn lights, cracklings and other refuse from the butchers. It is not required in large quantities, but a little meat boiled, chopped fine and mixed in their food is a necessity when eggs are expected.
