<p>This laboratory notebook contains two sets of records which cover chicks hatched between April and June 1902. Each has a different W number sequence.</p> <p>Entries begin with records for birds labelled W 866-999 [ [<a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(5);return false;'>pp. 2v-132r</a>]] (which hatched between April and May 1902), followed by a new series for birds W 1-74 [ [<a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(160);return false;'>pp. 133-190v</a>]] (hatched May to June 1902).</p> <p>Of the second series, birds W 1-25 were originally given different numbers in the journal which were then replaced and in some cases excised. (The original numbers include the sequence W 687-699 which was skipped between notebooks [<a href='/view/MS-ADD-10161-00001-00001-00008/3'>MS Add.10161/1/1/8</a>] and [<a href='/view/MS-ADD-10161-00001-00001-00009/4'>MS Add.10161/1/1/9</a>]).</p> <p>Entries for each bird include notes on colour, comb and other physical characteristics or oddities (e.g. crooked toes), state of health, and cause of death, etc. Bird W 42 [ [<a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(207);return false;'>page 172v</a>]] is marked 'important'. An additional loose list of chicks 'with/without [yellow]' is inserted between [ [<a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(67);return false;'>pp. 58-59</a>]].</p>
