CHUCKERS, WHAT ARE THEY

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

My husband wants to raise chuckers, I have no idea what they are.  Does anyone know where I could get eggs to put in the bator?

Does anyone know where I could get eggs to put in the bator?  Is that something that can be done do you think? If they are a wild game bird maybe I can't.

I think you will have luck there. I know I've seen people in chat discussing them (which is why I had to look up what they are! wink )

You could just start a new post there or you can pm a moderator and ask them to move it. I think you can find a list of moderators in the user list section. If not go back to your first post on this thread, and edit the subject line with something like, "Mods please move". I think!

When looking them up, make sure use the proper spelling chukar partidge.  BYC member CUDA has some very nice birds, I would check with him.

You might not be able to keep a bird from landing on your head but you can keep it from building a nest.
