    Just wanted to share my chukar pen set up. I found a free 6x6x4 dog kennel on Craigslist and some chicken wire was given to me. All of the wood used is scraps given to me from my work. The bottom of the pen is lined with chicken wire and the lower 2ft of the walls are lined with chicken wire as well. Currently raising 5 chukar and plan to butcher them at 18-20 weeks. Jan 1st about. Then I will purchase more and continue the process. Eventually I will start to incubate my own but not until next year. Then I plan to build a larger pen to raise pheasant. Feeding the chukar 21% protein game bird feed, meals worms and kale from my garden. They love the kale by the way. Let me know your thoughts... [​IMG]
