Her "family" arrived by truck from Poynette, Wis., where the state experimental game and fur farm is located. Their new home, minute a truck rolled onto the grounds about a. m. Friday. Dale Keilman, driver, took one look at the feed and shook his head. "That's what I was afraid brooder houses, shelter pens and wire runways, was ready and wait- ing. Sportsmen from all over Trem- pealeau county had contributed many hours of labor to construct the housing, starting two months ago on the project. One-Half of Project Arrival of the chicks, how- ever, represents culmination of one- half of a project that actually dates back several years. The Idea of building a mam- moth pheasant-rearing station had been the goal of the Association Conservation clubs of Trempealeau county, a group of about 2.000 ar- dent sportsmen from eight different clubs. Five of the Arcadia, Whitehall-Pigeon FsJls, Blalr-Ettrick and Independence- had small pheasant pens of their own. But the largest of these could only handle a maximum of chicks each spring. Banding together, the clubs be- gan raising money. There was a fall festival in 1948: then last year a two-day celebration was held at Arcadia. A Fourth of July picnic at Perrot park has been planned, for this year. Eight Acres When the treasury showed suffi- cient balances to warrant action, sportsmen moved rapidly. An ar- rangement was made with federal wild life refuge near here to use the ten new garbage pails filled to the brim with extra feed. "We discovered this one batch of feed had gone out and was too the driver explained. "You'll have to re-grind it, or screen out the bigger particles. I'm sorry." "I'm sorry sighed Mrs. Neil- on "but then, if this is the worst of my worries with these chicks I'll get off easy." By coarse feed, too." "But the state officials didn't say anything about exclaimed Mrs. Neilson, dismayed at the thought An Eight-Acre Section of the Trempealeau Wildlife refuge has become the scene of one of the largest pheasant-rearing pro- jects in the state of Wisconsin. Several of the ten brooder houses can be seen above, as well as a portion of the open wire runways. These runways are 150 feet long and 20 feet wide; they cover 400 feet of ground.

And the ail the to meet rigid spe- cifications and requirements. Brood- ing houses had to be of certain size, boated to specific tempera- tures; shelter pens had to allow so much space per bird: open runs had to be spacious to prevent over- crowding and cannibalism (one bird attacking anotherV Spends The Trempealeau county associ- ation spent meeting all these requirements.

Connected to these well-insulat- ed wooden brooder houses are small screened porches, onto which the; birds can run after a few providing the temperature outside is warm enough. After the tenth day, weather per-j mitting, the chicks are permitted toi enter large wire-enclosed shelter1 pens, Kich of which has an auto- matic watering device. In most cases when the pheasants are two weeks old they are al- lowed to use large runways. At the rearing station near here these run- ways are 20 feet wide and 150 feet long. There are ten such runs, each di- vided in two, covering 400 feet of ground. At no time do more than> 150 pheasants live together at thei project, and sportsmen figure each bird has at least 100 square feet of living space. The runs are long and narrow for two reasons: (l) they are cov- ered with wire faster and more easily, (2) pheasants can be driven out in case of storm much faster. Mrs. Neilson was kept busy pre- paring for the arrival yesterday of her "brood." She had to see that luke warm water was placed in the glass jars, that floors of the brood-! ers were heated to 100 degrees at! least 24 hours in advance, and that leed was properly ground and placed.
