    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.

    Sorry edited to add. Maybe I will post this in other poilty, Buy, Sell, trade

    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! [​IMG] )

    Quote: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.

    Chukar are partridge. You can try locally. My grandfather's bought them a few places up here. [​IMG] I'm going to be looking for some as well.
