The Chukar is a flighty bird that is often a favorite stock for small bird hunting. It is a stout 13-14-inch-long partridge, with a light brown back, grey breast, and buff belly. The face is white with a black gorget. It has rufous-streaked flanks, red legs, and a coral red bill. Sexes are similar; the females are only slightly smaller in size and lack the spur. Chicks are tan with dark streaks on their backs and have peach-colored beaks, legs, and feet.
