    I ask because when I was at my local feed store picking up chick food, they had a big bin of these little chicks and the label said "chu". I was distracted from asking the feed store guys by the bin of day old quail that made me wish I had an apron so I could scoop them all up and, I don't know, hug them really carefully, or eat them or something, they were so cute. I did a couple searches and haven't been able to find anything. So is a chu an actual bird, or did they just put random letters on the sign, or is it a nickname, or what? I am quite curious, especially since I can't find out. They were very cute and it was only their proximity to the quail that distracted me. Thank you much for any info [​IMG]

    yes! Yes, that is them! Haha, I guess that's why the searches didn't bring up anything. Thanks, now at least I can look up info on the proper bird, since I haven't heard of a chukar either [​IMG]
