I just loved this ad- 3000 eggs in 120 days? Miracle feed....

It also gets rid of chicken cholera too. Chicken cholera?

Well, if you do the math, that's an egg a day for 25 hens, which isn't impossible for 4 months in summer, although 30 hens would guarantee the amount and then some. Does it say how many hens it's supposed to feed, or how many to produce that many eggs?

The art work is nice and attractive - rather points up the fact that a lot of farm wives got their discretionary money from "egg-money"!

Dibbit she looks more like a spinster to me than a farm wife. LOL
