(Colinus cristatus)

cline01 (1K)



Additional Information

Breeding Season:

Breeding Age: First year.

Clutch Size: 8 to 16

Incubation Period:: 22-23 days

Description - Male:

Description - Female:

Status in Captivity: Crested Bobwhite are still rather uncommon in captivity. I am not sure of the races that we keep here in the US. You will see many breeders with Colombian Crested Bobwhites listed, but there are 7 races in Colombia and they could all be a combination. More information is needed from those who have imported this species.

Misc Notes: Tropical species that requires heated quarters in the winter months.
