Chukar Partridge

The Chukar is possibly the most aggresive bird I have ever raised, and I have raised at least a couple dozen species over the years. It will peck it's owner, claw it's cage mates to death, shatter it's own eggs, and generally just cause havoc. I was given six as day old chicks by a friend of mine who is also a professional breeder and was told in advance that they would be a challenge. They turned out to be a challenge not worth it. They were ugly, at least in my opinion, provided few eggs, and did not get as meaty as even my Coturnix Quail. My over-all experience with them was terrible. Much like Bobwhite Quails I raised in the past I ate all six by the end of summer 2008. They simply weren't worth it to me.
