IMPORTANT POINTS ON
PROFITABLE GEESE RAISING
Probably Hardiest oi All Domestic Fowls and Require Less

A Profitable Flock.
Geese are probably the hardiest of
all ddmestic fowls. They require less
attention and little or no outlay for
buildings. The two great objections
to geese are the noise they make and
the fact that they almost spoil a pas
ture lor other stuck. Cattle or sheep
do not like to graze after geese have
gone over the grass. Yet there should
tie a place for them on many more
farms than now keep them. Under
the right conditions, geese give bet
ter returns than most other farm
poultry, but if you do not understand
their nature and do not know how to
care for them, they are often the
Uy nature geese are more like cnt
tle in habit of feeding than like poul
try, writes Mrs. IL H. Rushing in the
Country Gentleman. They are essen
tially grazing animals, and too much
grain will spoil them. Pure air is
even of more Importance to geese
than to cattle. They will not thrive
if shut up in buildings. If you have
not a good pasture, do not try to keep
geese, or at least to raise many gos
lings. They can be kept in yards. If
fed an abundance of fodder corn,
green rape, clover or other succulent
feed; but this adds greatly to the ex
pense of raising them.
While green pasture Is very impor
tant for maintaining the old geese, it
is indispensable food for young goa-
lings. They must have fresh, tender
grass in abundance at all times during
the day, from tho first day they eat
to the time they are feathered and
have grown their wings. After that,
those Intended for market may be
penned and fed green stuff and grain,
but those intended for breeding should
continue to have the pasture and free
range. If a large flock Is raised, quite
a large pasture is needed to sustain
It takes geese almost as long to at
tain full development as it does cat
tle or sheep, but they remain profit
able for many years. Yearling geese
are very poor breeders; two-year-olds
are better, and they only reach their
best at three years of age. If one
wishes to make a start In breeding
geese, the best plan is to buy breed
ing stock early in the fall. They must
not only become accustomed to their
new quarters, but to each other, for
geese do not mate readily, and if put
together after. Jan. 1 will often fail
to breed that year. Old, well-mated
geese of the highest quality are the
cheapest and most profitable to buy.
The best way. however, to get a start
with young geese Is to order them be
fore they are hatched. Have the large
early-hatched specimens selected for
you and delivered early ih the fall.
They must be kept at least one year
without much profit, and two years be
fore they do their best, but in this
way one knows the age of the flock
and in the end. will be likely to get
much better results.
Two geese are usually sufficient for
one gander, and they often do better
in pairs during the breeding season.
The breeding season begins usually
about Feb. 1st. but sometimes one
will begin to lay as early as Decem
ber, then stop, and begin again In
February. They usually lay from 15
to L'O fggs before becoming broody.
As soon us they show an inclination
to sit they should be removed, placed
in a box for a few days, with water
feu drink, but given 1:0 food. After
tj-'is, pu; thorn btck in the yard again
and they will soon commence laying.
