Description - Male:

Description - Female:

Status in Captivity: Reviewing classified ads in the Gazette and other publications, this species seemed to be quite common in the US during the 1950s through the 1970s. There popularity during that stretch seemd to rival that as the Erckel's Francolin as the most common francolin in collections. However, in what has seemed to a common theme with a number of francolin and partridge species, a decline occurred in the late 1970s and 1980s and since this inception of this site in 1997, I have not seen any listed for sale or heard of anyone keeping this species in North America. There are a few birds seen in European aviaries, but I am not sure how widely kept or popular they are.
