Excerpt from Syllabus of Illustrated Lecture on the Production and Marketing of Eggs and Fowls
Leghorns are poor sitters, and eggs should not be trusted to them to incubate. For this reason where Leghorns are kept recourse must be had to incubators or to hens of sitting breeds to hatch the chicks. Leghorns are active, good foragers, and with good care the pullets will begin to lay at five months of age. The larger breeds are usually a month longer in beginning to lay.
Large breeds, such as Brahmas, Cochins, and Langshans, should not be kept for egg production. These are chieﬂy used where the market demands a large chicken for table purposes. In most markets, however, smaller fowls find more ready sale. The Brahmas and Cochins have meat of excellent quality, and being of a quiet disposition are fitted for the economical pro duction of meat.
