Partridge pens

Recommended Posts

I’ve put a fox grid on one of my partridge pens. I put a small bale of straw both sides of the gate so they could just hop on and come and go as they please.

For the first couple of weeks this worked with just 20/30 in the pen through the day and the rest all out in the cover crop.

Now they just will not leave the pen. I’ve got loads of buzzards all over the cover crop where the pen is what is the answer.

watched the pen for just over hour today and they come out then with in ten minutes mr buzzard +4 comes along and the partridge are all back in the pen with three hen pheasants also.

why are then not just running into the cover as all the pheasant do?

You have some tree cover there so buzzards should loose interest, once they can not see them, they will have to learn
