Incubation Period::

Description - Male: Both sexes share the bare yellow throat-patch for which the species is named; the plumage of neck, breast and lower abdomen steaked with white, buff and brown; backside and tail mostly brown; red facial skin; legs brownish-black. Males are slightly larger and carry two spurs (females mostly spurless).

Description - Female:

Status in Captivity: This species has gone through cycles of popularity in American aviculture. In the 1940s through the 1960s, Yellow-necked Francolin were readily available and affordable for most aviculturists. However, inbreeding and lack of interest caused a sharp decline in the captive number for the next three decades. New imporations in the late 1990s has once again helped gain interest in this species and hopefully, there will be some responsible aviculturists that will help preserve this species for future generations.
