Description opened the gate and let it back with the bunch so that it was not long enough away to make them think it a stranger. After a day or two at that particular hour as I came up with the food it would be at the gate to be let out, and in two weeks of this special feeding Runt had gained nearly double his weight. He was not afraid any more and would crowd himself in with the others. He grew up to be a brief ornament on our dining table. My wife took great interest in these experiments from the beginning, and she was the first to solve another problem.
