    My Coop
    Here in SW Colorado we see a lot of Dusky Grouse. Some people call them "tree chickens." They kinda look like chickens.. hell, they certainly TASTE like chickens. I know that our chickens in the coop have come down from the Jungle Fowl, but wonder, has anyone tried to breed Grouse into some sort of domestic bird like our chickens?
