my uncle is going to give me some chukars. Probably 20. Can I keep them with my chickens, let them out during the day to fly and free range and will they come back to the coop in the evening?
Free ranging chukars
No gamebirds should be kept with or near chickens.Chickens carry diseases that they can handle but over time will kill gamebirds.
I believe chukars are like bobwhites,if you leave 1 (probably a male) in a pen he will call them back.A call back cage is like a lobster trap with a funnel tipped upwards so they can't get back out.
