I am planning on building houseing for chuckers and ordering some chicks fairly soon. My question is, if I raise them from when they are little and they know the house is theres, will they return to the house after I release them during training my dog? Even if it takes a day or so? I would be training on my property where the house would be located. I would hate to release birds that would not return unlike I believe pigeons that return. So if I was to use chuckers and they would not be returning, I guess I will be eating a lot of birds this year. My reason for going with chuckers instead of pigeons is that I do not want to take on too many different birds. I figure chuckers taste better then pigeon when i would shoot them, and a chucker would be a more all around bird. What are some of your thoughts and experiences with raising chuckers?
