Someone just brought 14 partridge eggs over tonight since they knew I liked birds. I have never owned nor seen a partridge other than a picture of some. I was wanting to know how many days does it take to hatch them and what temp. setting they should be on? After they are hatched out do I feed them game feed or something else? Will they start flying soon like chickens? What is the smallest sized opening that they can't get out of? I have some wire with 1/4 inch holes which I doubt they could get out of but don't know if I have enough for a nice enclousure or not. Want to be perpared incase the store doesn't have anymore of that type of wire. We have to many cats around that I will probably use a wire top on the pen instead of the screen mesh if it is safe. Not sure what type of partridge they are but I can't wait for when they hatch. Be something different besides chicks/goslings/ducklings. I'm going to look around the internet for more information also.
