    Have anyone here raised elegant crested tinamous here? If so i have some questions:

    1- What is the recommend size for their pen?
    2- When is their breeding season? I read its between August and November, is this right?
    3- What is the right temperature to incubate their eggs with?
    4- How i could raise there chicks in captivity?
    5- Could they survive the heat up to 119?

    Any help will be appreciated, thanks.

    I don't think the crested tinamous are really around in captivity. There is a lot more info on Chilean though
