    You Do Get Around Dont Ya Ladd? [​IMG]

    Incubation= Same Conditions As Chickens, Usually 23-25 Days. The Eggs Are The Size Of Really Large Quail Eggs. Yes Chukar Are Like Bob White Quail--- Not Coturnix. They Are Seasonal Layers, So What You Have Heard About Bob White Pretty Much Applies To These Guys Too... Feed Is The Same As Bobs Too--- Gamebird Starter/ Feed. The Higher The Protien The Better. As Far As Web Sites---idk? Do A Web Search Or Be Patient And Somebody 'round Here Will Come Up With Some For Ya!
