TO help improve the quality of laying stock for poultry farmers in Western Australia the Poultry Branch of the Department of Agriculture conducts annual random sample egg laying tests.
The tests reveal good and bad points in the laying strains available, and their results are a valuable guide to breeders.
Most of the chickens sold in Western Australia are now bred by hatcherymen who participate in the Random Sample Tests.
