GEESE MOST PECULIAR FOWL

Chinees Breed Much Different From
Others as Gander Will Mete With
EVERY INCH A TROOP
Of all our domestic fowls, geese are
tho moot peculiar of all of them la
several ways. With tho wild or Cana
dian breed It la customary for one
gander or male to mate with only one
female, occasionally with two, but this
Is somewhat rare.
Tho Chinese breed Io much different
from any of tbe others, Inasmuch as
one rander will frequently mate with
five or alx females, and commonly
with four or more, while the Toulouse.
Emden and African usually mate with
a single female or In pairs or occa
sionally with two females, thus com
prising a trio.
Egyptian and Canadian ganders will
not breed until they are two years old.
While moot yearlings of other breeds
have breeding ability they are not
often used, aa they are at their best
from three to five years of age, and
can then be kept from three to five
years for breeding purposes, or until
seven or eight years of age In most
cases. Many ganders and females are
good breeders at ten years of age and
Ln extreme Instances, ganders twenty
years of age have been known. Geese

It Is a common practice to mate old
females with young ganders and old
ganders with young females.
Matings with geese are often perma
nent unless changed by the breeder,
and for this reason any matings that
are to be changed should be changed
In the fall so that several months may
elapse before the breeding season.
Ganders are very savage during the
breeding season, and for that reason It
