    Default Training Birds

    Thinking about raising some birds to train my own personal dog with. Wondering if anyone is interested in buying some birds and what kind. Before I order a bunch of birds id like to figure out what the demand is.

    I'd be interested in some chukkars. I'd also be interested if someone has homing pidgeons I could scare the daylights out of!

    Not sure what you're going to have to ask for them, but pigeons or chukars, I would like to get a dozen from you next summer to tune up my pup before season. --HR

    Demainah, I'd be interested in quail as well. Are you offering g a deal here? Can you hold birds until I use them? For example, if I commit to 10 birds, can I come get them 2 at a time?

    Decided not to raise birds, not enough interest for it to be worth it.
