anyone raise prairie chickens?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Im interested in hatching and raising prairie chickens and was wondering if anyone does it or knows where I could locate some eggs or breeding stock. This is still in the idea stage as I dont know for sure if I could legally own them in KS but I cant think of why I couldnt. Any help would be appreciated.

IMHO the first thing you should to is contact your state wildlife dept or game and fish dept.    Not only to find out if you can but they may be some type of cost share program for the birds and they might know where you could get them from.

The Attwaters prairie chicken is highly endangered with only 260 left in the wild as of 2014. So very doubtful you can get any. The greater prairie chicken can be had by contacting Prairie ridge Aviary..

It would be interesting to see if you could get involved with a population restoration project. Been trying to see who I should get in contact with here in Illinois about getting involved with raising them. It looks like a while back they were flying birds from out of state for a hefty fee which seems silly.
