Birdguy do you know of a really unique one I haven't posted yet? Of course there are tons more I have missed but I will keep posting as I come across them. I haven't gotten to quail at all I guess.

The eared pheasants are pretty cool (blue, white and brown). Diggers like the impeyans but pretty docile and cool sounding birds.

@Boneaddict probably has forgotten more about galliformes than most will ever know.

What's the birds running all over the big island Hawaii?

Partridge sized, looked very huntable and were everywhere in the huntable areas of the game range.

Looked like those francolin

I pretty much have raised a majority of the ones listed here and maybe some that havenít been posted yet.   I loved this time of year.    The Wenas never sounded so good.    My last mated pair was killed by a coon this last summer.   I have torn down all but two pens.   Iíve contemplated doing a couple mandarins in one of the pens and maybe some regular ones, in another.   
I was also friends with the gentleman from walla walla that released them(he used to be a member on here)  Many of them were birds from my place.   Their downfall was they were so aggressive.   Theyíd attack hunters and get shot.  Throughout the years Iíve lost a couple birds out into,the Wenas.   I had several live outside of my pens and survived for years.   The one I just lost was a silver, that actually lived free for years, finally broke into the pen to fight the male in there and then stayed inside the pen.

I'm going to raise them soon.  Want to up my dog training game post retirement, when I can actually travel and chase titles.

Be cool to do some exotics, and be a small miller ranch type deal.

I don't have any wild phez nor expect any to show up, in a pocket of good phez habitat yet sheilded from any migration in from colville valley.

I had a lot of enjoyment doing it.   It was an awesome experience for my kids.   I could have easily marketed birds around the world, but international shipping refs are a beast, so I stayed within the boundaries of the US.   In your neck of the woods, snowfall and top nets will be your enemy.
