I seen lots of chicks this year too.
Seems like no matter the conditions,them old birds just scratch out a living.
There is one bird around my place that gimps around on one leg.
I know for fact it is from freezing winter temps,standing around like a flamingo.
Tough old bird for sure.
I rather piss in the wind,then have piss down my back.

I have a group of 2 hens with 18 young, and 1 hen with 5 young roaming around my place in Cocolalla.   Definitely more than what I saw last year, but I have only been here a couple years so I don't have much data to go on.

It was a much dryer spring than last year which I would assume has some impact. 

Saw these three on August 30th last year!  very late hatch for sure.  Pretty sure they did not make it.

Agreed good hatch. First year in a few we've had turkeys on the family farm. Three hens with 4 polts a piece is a good sign.

The wenas valley and surrounding areas have had good hatches as well. Saw two groups of hens and poults the other day, all poults where large and there were about 8-12 poults with each hen.

I have also been seeing more blue grouse than usual in the same areas. Saw 4 today actually.
