Chukars

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Anyone breed chukars? I would like to try my hand at it but am totally new to it. What kind of pen set up do you have? Is there anyway to tell the difference in male or female?

                                            Mine just started laying.They say the female is smaller and the male grows spurs.They are very friendly birds.One guy I read about lets his out in the morning and his dog herds them back in at night.They are a coloney bird and you cant put a bird from a different colony in with them.I bought 30 chicks from murry mcmurry hatchly.I kept them with my white quail for bout a year.The internet has some good reading about caging and general info.I use same type cages as as my quail.They like sandy soil.When they start mating,i will probally separate some to keep them from fighting.You need to trim their upper beaks every couple weeks.They will pull feathers off backs of other birds.The beak trimng put an end to that.Theirs quite a few places that sell chicks and eggs,They are a very beautiful bird,hard to
hold with 2 hands.
