Although game breeding in the
United States is still in its infancy
there are to-day more than a mil
lion affiliated bird students and con
servationists, and half that number
of sportsmen who are working for
bird, and game preservation, says
the American Forestry Association,
of Washington, which" is conducting
a national bird-house building con
test to aid in this worthy movement.
It has been shown that many wild
game birds can be propagated suc
cessfully in captivity. In nature
probably less than 10 per cent of the
eggs of game birds develop into ma
ture birds. By artificial cultivation
as high as an 80 per cent yield has
often been attained.
