I have never heard of pen raised Ruffed Grouse, or any place to get eggs. If you discover something different, I' d really like to know about it.

You would have trouble buying the eggs but you can definitely buy breeding stock. If you are serious get the magazine The Gazette, PO box 171227, Salt Lake City, Utah 84117. This publication is $25 a year and lists all kinds of game birds for sale. You can expect to pay $200 to 300 a pair for them and if you haven' t any experience raising them you' ll probably lose them before you ever get an egg out of them. They are among the easier grouse to rear in captivity but all grouse are very susceeptible to diseae. You almost have to raise them on wire floored pens also cocks like to kill the hens when the can' t get away from them. I used to raise Sharptail and Prairie Chickens and it is fun but a real challenge. Oh yes one more thing most states require a domestication or propagation permit from your DNR or whatever it is called in your state. I am not trying to discourage you but their is a lot more to it than raising a few chickens.

I agree and you better know what you are doing for the cash you are going to put out. These birds are not for the starting person.

Dont know much about raising gamebirds.

Always have heard that the reason grouse have never been propogated on a large scale by most wildlife agencies is that they are extremely difficult to raise in captivity.

Here is a link for you to check out on the Ruffed Grouse.http://www.ruffedgrousesociety.org/

Hope this answers some if not all your questions about Ruffed Grouse.
