Introduction:

The purpose of this book is to convey a clearer conception of the basics of gamebird propagation. It includes the fundamental principles involved in various gamebird practices, and up-to-date information concerning methods of gamebird production and marketing.

In general, the book refers to commercial production.  The same basic principles can be adapted to producing and maintaining a small flock. 

Personal enjoyment in raising gamebirds depends largely upon knowledge of the basic principles and practices explained in this book.  Economic success in commercial gamebird production and marketing depends on understanding the basics, and practicing all the principles, of effective mass-production and efficient marketing and delivery.

Raising gamebirds is an attractive business for small acreage, either as a hobby, a 4-H project - or a full scale commercial operation.  The interest is increasing rapidly and the market for gamebirds is greatly expanding.  Gamebird propagation is an ideal hobby that maintains closer touch with 'nature'.

Many people raise gamebirds to release in wildlife coverts near their own home.  Increasing numbers of gamebirds are produced for the gourmet food market or for individual consumption.
