That a duck will fly upon a roost at night or perch itself on a post to preen itself would probably be dis- t~uted by those In the Palouse coun- try who ,',re supposed to be versed in duckology. Yet Henry Foss of Pot- latch, conductor on the ~V., I. & M. railroad, has several ducks that be- have in this nla~p~e:" The ducks owned by Mr. Fo~,~are/-~known as ~us- copy ducks and originated in South Anlerica. Here are some of the peculiarities of these ducks: They do not quack. They have web feet, yet will nse wa- ter for drinking purposes only. The female weighs from eight to twelve ponnds and the male from ten to sixteen pounds when fully developed. Most ch*eks e(insunle four weeks' time in h'*tching, but the mother of thes~ ducks must undergo the Inconven- ience of sitting five weeks. The te- rn'de when not sitting is somewhat of a. gadabout. She will rise ~lp out of the pen and fly, taking a circle oi' several blocks and light in the pen again. At night they wilt fly up onto a roost like a chicken to roost and will perch themselves on a post in daytime and preen themseh, es. It seems as though they are ready to ~mash every ~reeendent in duckdom. They are pure white in color and the males have a more highly colored bill titan the females. ~r. Foss, the owner of these birds, resides at Potlatch, and it would be safe to say that he owns the only ducks of this species in Latah connty. Class Meeting at Christian Church.
