Raymond A Evans, James A Young, and David E Savage, Utilization of Medusahead and Downy Brome Caryopses by Chukar Partridges: .

Summary

Chukar partridges (Alectoris graeca) in separate groups were fed rations consisting of caryopses of downy brome (Bromus tectorum) and medusahead (Taeniatherum asperum), and commercial game farm pellets. The birds readily ingested the caryopses of both grasses. The caryopses of medusahead appeared to be largely indigestible. Severe weight losses occurred when birds were fed caryopses of either species. Birds fed downy brome appeared in better condition than those fed medusahead. Published in The Journal of Wildlife Management, volume 33, issue 4, on pages 975 - 978, in 1969.
