CLOSING COMMENTS

Fair season has started for yet another year. I always enjoy this time of the year. Not only because it is the summer, but because it gives us a chance to take our birds to various locations and show them to people who may otherwise never see purebred poultry and pigeons. I heard several people comment at the recent show in Murray River that they had never seen so many different kinds of birds; and Murray River is not a big show!

As you can see above, I made a recent trip to Lachute, Quebec, to show at their local fair. It is several years since I last showed there. It was nice to be back. They really appreciated that I showed there.

Old Home Week is quickly coming up. As I mention every year, we need help to set up and tear down. Like other events, Old Home Week depends on volunteers to make this happen. It is discouraging when people who can help, even for a little while, just pack up and bail out. Thankfully there are those who realize the need to help out and for this, they are greatly appreciated. If you are physically able, please stay and help tear down the show!

Trevor MacDonald,

WILD WATERFOWL (www.ducks.org)

Editor’s note: I started this series in November, 2014. From time to time, when space has permitted, I have added to it. This is a continuation of that series. These are breeds that are not recognized in the Standard of Perfection.

CACKLING CANADA: Cacking geese tend to nest in more northern habitats than Canada geese. Female Cackling geese lay 2-8 eggs with an average incubation period of 25-28 days. Cackling geese resemble Canada geese in appearance. Male cackling geese are slightly larger than females, with both sexes having long, black necks with white chinstaps. The breast, abdomen, and flanks range in coloring from a light gray to a dark chocolate brown, either blending into the black neck or being separated from it by a wide white color. The back and scapulars are draker brown, the rump is blackish and the tail is blackish-brown with a U-shaped white band on the rump. The bill, feet, and legs are black. Cackling geese are a small-bodied group of four sub-species, consisting of Aleutian, Cackling, Taverner’s, and Richardson’s (Hutchins’s) geese. Cackling geese have proportionally smaller, stubier, triangular-shaped bills than their Canada goose counterparts.

The population of the Aleutian was down to fewer than 500 birds in the 1970s. The Aleutian cackling goose is a success story in waterfowl management. Population estimates based on observation of neck-banded Aleutian cackling geese during the winter of 2006-07 was 118,700, 13 percent greater than the previous year. Estimates for Aleutian cackling geese increased an average of 14 percent per year from 1997-2006. The 2008 fall estimates of cackling geese was 173,400 geese. The estimate for Taverner’s cackling geese (a pooled estimate of Taverner’s and Lesser Canada geese) was 74,400 birds for 2007. The Richardson’s (Hutchins’s) goose subspecies is thought to be increasing, with population estiumates greater than 680,000 in 2007.

From a harvest management perspective, cackling geese are usually included in season lengths and bag limits with other white-cheeked geese.

The migrating of the cackling geese vary. The Aleutian, Cackling, and Taverner’s geese primarily winter west of the continental divide, while Richardsons’s (Hutchins’s) geese winter mainly in the southern central Flyway states.

HAPPY 150th BIRTHDAY, CANADA

THE EGG

The egg is nature’s finest form, almost poetic in its purity. Everyone knows what an eggs is, or do they? Its shell looks solid but has 6,000 to 8,000 pores or tiny openings … a materpiece of construction. (Canadian Egg Marketing Agency)

THIS IS THE 409th

EDITION OF

THE CLUB NEWSLETTER!

THE DOMIIQUE – A BRIEF HISTORY

The Dominique is a breed of chickens that originated in the United States during the Colonial period. It is considered America’s oldest breed of chicken, probably descending from chickens brought to New England from southern England during colonial times. By the 19th century, they were widely popular and were raised in many parts of the country. Dominiques are a dual-purpose breed, being valued for their meat as well as their brown eggs. They weigh 6-8 pounds at maturity. In earlier times, their feathers were much sought after as stuffing for pillows and mattresses. In more recent times, they have become quite rare. A miniature size of the Dominique also exists.

FUN FEATHER FACTS

(Watching Backyard Birds)

1. All birds, and only birds, have feathers, although a few species of dinosaurs had them.

2. Feathers are essential to flight; they provide insulation, sunblock, and waterproofing, and can be important in providing camouflage, social dominance, and reproductive success.

3. A bird’s plumage usually weighs more than its skeleton.

4. Adult birds molt – replace their feathers – at least once a year. For most songbirds, moulting takes five to twelve weeks, shedding only a few feathers at a time. For hawks, a full molt can take several years.

5. After breeding season, most male duck species in North America replace all their flight feathersat once and are flightless for two to four weeks.

CLOSING COMMENTS

July marks a milestone each year for me in regards to this club newsletter. It is the starting month of another “year”. It is hard to believe that this is the start of the 35th year of the newsletter. And there has been one published EVERY month without having missed one over all these years.

I always look forward to the fair season. It is a chance to get out and show my birds at a series of events over the summer and early fall. My fair season started earlier this year than it ever has. I was very pleased to have the opportunity to show at Ormstown Fair in Quebec in early June. From all reports, it was a good show, although the temperature was hot. Thankfully, all the birds that were shown made it home safe and sound.

CLOSING COMMENTS

Another Spring Show is behind us. It was a good show once again. It is always good to see a number of exhibitors from off-Island.

Hatching season for many has wrapped up. However, there are still a few with incubators on the go. By all accounts, it has been a mixed year for hatching. Some have had good luck while others have not been as fortunate.

Trevor MacDonald,

Editor
