Here are just a few of my personal experiences with raising Chukar commercially in the areas being discussed...
An electric debeaker (used properly) will definitely solve the picking problem and by the time you sell the birds, the beak will be rounded back off from them picking around and no one will know you ever did it.
This will allow you to commercially grow the birds in less than desired square footage and keep them feathered nice (that's not all to nice feathering).
I'm not a fan of keeping them completely under roof as your barn appears in the pics will be doing. They need rained on, or rain simulated for them so they will oil their feathers and fly for the preserve when it's wet (dew, misting, raining, snowing) out. It's not always sunny and dry when people hunt and if the bird gets wet, it still needs to perform the way the preserve owner and hunter expects it to.
The last thing someone wants is their dog catching the bird and not getting a shot off because the bird didn't fly but 2 feet of the ground or only flew 20 feet just over the dogs head and the hunter couldn't get a shot off for fear of shooting the dog(s).
If you did everything right, those chukar should be as skiddish of people, dogs, etc. You'll know this when you try to approach the pen to feed, water or check on them and they exploded into flight versus stand their and eat from your hand.
I don't know if you've every hunted birds, but if you have, you should know what is expected from the birds (atheletes actually) you are going to be raising....Dog goes on point, hunter approaches, hunter flushes bird, bird shoots out of cover strong, fast and flying high, hunter hopefully hits (makes me more proud to hear they miss because my bird out-flew the gun and I know I raised as wild acting a bird as I could that performed top-notch in the setting it was intended for.
If you don't use blinders, rings, or debeak, you will most definitely be needing a much bigger pen for the number of birds you are talking.
Many hiding places need to be provided to allow those that are being picked on to get away from the others. A huge open room will not provide a good outcome, unless you're setup is a "dark room" environment....That's a whole other thread.
Obviously, this thread is only scratching the surface of what you need to know, but ultimately, experience, experience, experience....luck and trial & error are going to be your best lessons. No two farm setups are identically the same. Each one is what each farm found to be the best that works for them.
I can arrange a one-on-one personal consulatation session with you via phone for another $500 fee...
I highly recommend that if you're getting into a commercial level setup, you join NAGA (North American Gamebird Association).
