French Redleg Partridges



This is the third year we are raising and selling adult French Redleg Partridges.  We have been importing the eggs from France – hatching and raising the chicks to maturity on our farm.  This year we have grown 10,000 mature Redlegs.  We find the birds to be the hardiest partridges we have ever seen.  The adult birds are incredibly uniform.  As you can see in the pictures accompanying this post – the birds have significant speckling across their chests – they appear quite different from Chukar Partridge. 

This afternoon we are shipping 3,000 Redlegs to a new customer.  I think the customer will be very happy with the birds.  We raised the birds on the ground (vs. on wire).  The Redlegs we have raised are very flighty.

    I was wondering if you have any videos of your red legs or their breeding pens. I raised 2000 last year and bought the chicks. This year I am looking to raise 3000-3500 and I kept some for breeding stock this year. Can you breed them in flocks or do you have to have pens for pairs. Any information you have would be a great help

    Thanks
