    Has anyone got a good paint schedule for chukar? I've seen a couple inquiries in these forums but never seen a response. Thanks.

    I use Pan Pastels "Magenta Shade" and "Permanent Red Shade" for the feet and beaks. The leg scales are Red Shade but the center of each scale is magenta-pink. Just seal after each color with a matte finish and be careful around the red eye ring, do not get any on the feathers. If it lands on feathers, try blowing it off - don't wipe or it's permanent! web 2.jpg website 2.jpg
