    Default Question on storing birds

    i am headed out on a 5 day training trip at the beginning of next month, going to be doing a lot of training and in different areas. will be training my lab and Brittney for both upland and waterfowl.

    I planning on taking some live birds, right now it will be mallards and quail unless i can find some chucker locally before them. what do i need to do with these birds to keep them healthy throughout the trip. I will be shooting then throughout the trip so there will be some alive the until the last day.

    I know they will need water but what about food? Will i need to keep them feed the whole trip? any special care that i need to take into account?

    Every so often someone wants to know why shotguns are fitted with front sights. My first response is to pose another question: Why did World War II Japanese kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

    If you were locked up in a cage for 5 days wouldn't you want to eat?

    Better keep 'em out of the wind when traveling and in the shade all the time...and yes they need to eat.

    Interesting. I figured that since 99% of folks strap their bird crates to the top of the chassis mounts they liked the wind in their feathers. I guess not?

    I'm guessing the Quail might have an opinion before they die on the topper.

    I wonder what happens if you put the ducks in the same box as the quail. Will they get along?

    Eventually the Quail will get verrryyy quiet and the ducks will stack them upfront of the box to break the wind.

    I didn't see the quail. I don't guess they would last long at all doing a Mitt Romney they are delicate creatures. But ducks? They seem to travel frequently on top of trucks. Is it really an issue for them?
