Does anybody know where I can get some chicks? I need to start training my dogs on these birds this spring.... Just kidding! Actually, I've heard they're difficult, if not darn near impossible to raise in captivity. Which was I was surprised on Sunday to visit the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary and find a couple ruffed grouse in their upland game exhibit. My daughter gravitated right to them: ... meaning they held her three year old attention for a SOLID 30 seconds! Anyway, they were pretty neat to see. Of the birds in the exhibit (bobwhites and several pheasant varieties) the grouse seemed almost tame. They ran right up to the fence and hung out there the whole time we were around. Neat place. I hadn't been there since I was maybe 8 or so. KW Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
