    I had bought a pair of chukars at a poultry swap meet and I ordered chukar chicks and I have 50 full grown chukars now and I was wondering if I could introduce the pair into the group of chukars I read that they form colonies and I plan on selling 20 of them to the local gun club for a spring shoot and was figuring that I could put them in since I was changing the colony group.

    I would not do it.Chukars are cannibals and will kill each other ecspecially new comers to their colony.Maybe they should be part of the 20 you are getting rid of.
