Melons For Fowls

Have "stock melons" or "citrons" any merit as a green food for laying

hens? Are the seeds of the above injurious to hens or cows?

Stock melons are desirable for chicken feeding if other succulent

materials are scarce, but they are inferior to alfalfa and other

clovers. Seeds are not injurious to stock unless possibly one should

feed to excess by separating them from the other tissues. If melons are

fed as they grow, no apprehension need be had from injury by seed.
