The world is demanding to know, not What are you? or What do you look like? but What can you do? Drones are being culled out in all lines of business activity, and rightly so- and the same is true with the poultry business. The hen which delivers the goods is the hen which is in demand. The hen that lays is the hen that pays.We have two reasons for publishing The Call of the Hen.

Some three years ago Mr. Hogan sent us three males, all Single Comb White Leghorns- one was of his 280-egg type, selected according to this system, another was of the 150-egg type, and the third was of a 70- or 80-egg type.

He also sent us two pens of hens of his own selection and breeding. We trapnested all the hens, and bred from all three males. The results in every case have borne out Mr. Hogans claims and the truthfulness of his methods of selection and breeding. We have also tested the hens in the egg-laying contests- taken measurements and made tests and judged their capacity for laying as per this system, The Call Of the Hen. The results so nearly tally with the system in practically every case that we feel that this is a valuable method of selection and breeding, which should be in the hands of everyone who attempts to raise poultry.Capacity, condition, type, and vigor must all be taken into consideration in determining whether a hen will be a good producer or a poor producer.

By making a careful and sensible application of the rules made known in this book, it is possible for any poultry-raiser to avoid great loss.We are told, and have good reason to believe that it is true, that the average farm hen lays less than 80 eggs per year. If that be true, about half the poultry is being kept at a loss to the owner.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
