There Are some very interesting possibilities. About sixty of the two Hundred species of wild fowl Are found in America. There Are two families or classes of ducks the sea ducks or divers and the Shoal water ducks or dabblers. The last named Are the most suitable for game farms and preserves in More of the states. Wild geese can be reared in Fields which contain Small Ponds and Good stretches of grass. They Are fed also with Corn and other Grain. The Field should be enclosed with a Fence made of netting five or six feet High and one Wing of geese should be clipped. One pair of Quail and its progeny would produce Over six million Quail in eight years provided each nest contained Only twelve eggs and there were no losses. Frequently the nests contain More than a dozen eggs sometimes Over Twenty eggs Are found in a nest. It is evident from this that vermin and varmints have to f e killed off by the game breeder.

Many Ponds and Small swampy tracts from new England to the Pacific coast can be made to produce wild ducks abundantly and profitably.
