The survival rates of redlegged partridges artificially hatched and brooded (Incubator) or naturally hatched and brooded by their own parents in small flying pens (Parents), were evaluated in 28 radiotagged redlegged partridges. Results showed that all the partridges of the group Incubator deceased within 80 days after release and only 4 partridges (28.5%) of the group Parents were still alive after 100 days from their release in the wild. Other raising and/or adapting techniques must be studied and tested in the field to improve survival rates.

Abstract

The survival rates of redlegged partridges artificially hatched and brooded (Incubator) or naturally hatched and brooded by their own parents in small flying pens (Parents), were evaluated in 28 radiotagged redlegged partridges. Results showed that all the partridges of the group Incubator deceased within 80 days after release and only 4 partridges (28.5%) of the group Parents were still alive after 100 days from their release in the wild. Other raising and/or adapting techniques must be studied and tested in the field to improve survival rates.
