Abstract
  • The disposal of dead birds on the average specialized poultry farm often becomes a burdensome problem that is not satisfactorily handled. The average annual mortality of poultry in the United States is about 20 percent. On a poultry farm with 2000 laying birds, therefore, one may expect to lose about 400 birds during the year. Incineration is the preferred method of disposal, provided the carcasses are completely burned. Carcasses that merely have the feathers burned oft and the skin scorched may be left as a serious source of disease, The disposal pit is an effective convenient means for disposal of dead birds that is within the means of all poultry raisers.
