    Can anyone give me any pointers as to how to tell males and females apart when it comes to French red legs??? I am assuming they are very similar to chukar in terms of sexing?
    When I used to have chukars(its been 3 yrs already since I had those last, time flies....) I used to go by the shape of the spurs. Oval shaped for females and round for males right? Although some were just obvious just by over all shape and behaviour.


    Thanks in advance,
    Anna

    I believe the male has a spur.The male is slightly bigger then the hen.In N.H.,Tony.
