Correnpondent Rural World. *
In your editorial columns of
September 30,1 find a reference
to the successful raising of
quails by a resident of New
Jersey, in which it is said that
frequent efforts in this direction
heretofore made, have proved
futile. His article closes with
this sentence: "This experi-
ment of raising young quails
has been undertaken by game
societies all over the world for
years, but this is the first time
anyone has succeeded, so far
as the record shows."
Permit me to state that this
is a mistake. I have frequent-
ly seen, from time to time in
the past forty years, quails rais-
ed about farmers' houses, and
as tame as pet chickens with
which they associated. Were
it not that the wild quails, in
the farm fields, entice the tame
ones away, there is no morie
difficulty in raising these birds
(and keeping them from stray-
ing) than there is in raising
bantam chickens. Although
never attempting to raise quails
from the eggs, I have myself,
during the several hard winters,
sufficiently domesticated the
wild ones by feeding them as
to have them come at call for
the food I gave them daily, in
order to save them from perish-
g and for breeding them the
following season. True, they
become shy again when they
are reared in the fields, and
woods, away from "the haunts
of man," I have seen them as
wild as quails ever become.
