Chick sighting thread?


Active member
Anyone seeing any broods of chicks yet? Nothing for me here in Eastern, IA, however I'm in very low pheasant density areas and usually don't see many at any point in the year.

I saw my first yesterday morning in MN on my way to SD. I saw about eight little ones with a hen on the side of the black top. Could have been more the grass was tall.

Saw my first brood on the 14th, which I thought was early. Cutting hay today, I leave about 1/2 of my hay to cut later but this field is an important income producer. Hate to do it but it is early enough they will renest, hopefully in the CRP.
