    I have a small group of Wild chukars that hang around my residential home and a small free space behind it. They look healthy and of good size, there are new chicks every spring.
    They actually hang out in my driveway, side yard and even on my doorstep.
    My question is, should I feed them? There's an easy foot of solid snow in my yard and more in the surrounding areas. I feel bad for them. I don't want To make them too comfortable with people, but it seems like they already are...

    [​IMG] Some people don't believe in feeding wildlife, but I feed the wild birds year round - I'd feed them.
