Metabolic rate and colonic temperature were measured in chukars between 1st and 108th day of life (divided into six age groups: 1-3-days old, 1, 2, 3, and 4-weeks old and 3.5-months old) in ambient temperatures set separately for each group and ranging from -12 to 41 degrees C. The Gompertz growth constant for growing chukars (0.042) was close to the value obtained in earlier study for the grey partridge. Similarly as in other species of Galliformes, newly hatched chukar chicks had lower T(b… CONTINUE READING
