    Well I know but I was just generally speaking since it is dealt with even more-so with ground pens.

    What kind of parasites will I have to worry about if it is raised & roofed, though? [​IMG] [​IMG]



    So, back to the original question.......any takers? [​IMG] Err, answerers? [​IMG]

    you will still have mites, lice, worms,and other internal parasites. I have seen no difference in the amount of parasites from my quail in gorund pens or raised pens. I seem to lose more to predators in raised pens. I will get pics of one of my rasied pens tommorow, it only took about 3 hours to build.

    Judging from the pics I've seen it looks to be about right for 1 pair of chukar, you might let us know the dementions just to make sure.

    That would be great for 1 pair and that is almost enough space for 2 pair so they will have room to breath and be happy.
