The purpose of this article is to provide purchasers of young chickens with an out- -1- line of the procedures and problems associated with successful chicken raising, and perhaps to serve as a reminder to those poultry farmers who already have a good knowledge of the subject. The wide range of subject matter has made it necessary to present much of the material in a condensed form, and reference should be made to various departmental leaflets for an elaboration of many of the points mentioned in this article. The advisory service of the Department of Agriculture, Poultry Branch, is available to poultry farmers seeking information. Instruction on all matters relating to poultry husbandry will be freely given and visits to farms by field officers can be arranged.
