GLASS POULTRY HOUSE: This glass block poultry house on the farm of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Pryce on Huron River Dr., five miles east of Ann Arbor, represents a development in the construction of chicken homes with an eye to increasing egg production. The lights are turned on at 5 a.m., and the glass walls admit most of the natural light during the day without being transparent. The Pryce's 200 White Leghorns have jumped their production from two dozen eggs a day to six dozen in three weeks in their new home.
