    Didn't want to hijack Tori's thread, so I posted my own! [​IMG]

    I am planning on making a 100' L x 7' H x (idk) 10' W flight pen for bobwhites and chukars next year.

    Can I keep them together in the same pen?? If not I could always divide it in half, but I would like to give them as much flying room as possible! (Can you tell I want a huge operation?? [​IMG] )

    How many birds (roughly) would I be able to keep in a flight pen that size?

    Will either of them brood their own young, or will I have to incubate all the eggs?
    I am sure I will have many more questions, but this should hold me for now! [​IMG]

    shelld2008, I visited a chukar/bob white/pheasant farm in Lucasville Ohio. Really neat place. yes, you can put the chukars and bob white together. You cannot put pheasant in with them. He had a 50x100 flight cage. He had several hundred birds. This man started his project this past spring. He was selling the to the wild life to repopulate different areas. I can give you this man's phone number. He is very knowledgeable and will be able to answer all of your questions. He has the neatest flight cage I have ever seen. PM me if you would like his phone number. Good Luck on your project. It will be very enjoyable.
