      We just recieved a pair of black teetar's as a gift, I have no idea about their care.

      I put them in a regular teetar cage and gave them some bird seed and water but I don't know if they have some special requirements or dietary needs different from regular brown teetars

      I know that they're from Sindh so I make sure to keep them warm enough.

      They're really easily frightened and keep the feathers on their head perched up most of the time and scream the place down if I go near their cage but they're beautiful jet black, black beak and everything with white, brown and maroon markings.

      I'd do google-research on them myself but I don't know what they're called in English.

      Thanks ehtasaab, but mines are not grey/brown, they are black, I just substituted 'grey' for 'black' and found there's a wiki article on them, mine are fatter and prettier than the pic displayed.

      My mom says they're not likely to become tame, her brother once bought some black teetar eggs which they hatched under a hen but as soon as they hatched they realised the hen wasn't their momma and ran away into woods... She says the grey teetar's can become tame and they always use to hatch them under hens who bought them up like their own chickens (ultimate adoption).

      Aliyish and Radiance, black teetars are meant to be quite pricy. Every tom, dick and harry has grey teetars and bateyrs but black ones are a status symbol.

      Caviar is very pricy but people do eat it . Being pricy cannot deprive a black or white teetar from its rightful place on the plate.
      You can make teetar qorma with ashrafion ya silver dollar ka baghar . Put some sonay and chandee kay waraq on each boti of that teetar after teetar qorma is ready.

      I think its zulm... these things should be out in the wild.... running and flying... thats in their nature... and then they get trapped in a small pinjra, where there is just enough room to then stand or sit all their lives...

      If I was them, I'd perfer a teetar karahi than a life in prison.

      Having said all that... I love hunting... and have been going all my life to hunting trips for partridges(teetars) and ducks and chukars etc. Ethical hunting is the key and I have no problems with it.

      Khair two separate issues... You might find it funny that I'm OK with killing them but not having them in a pinjra. My grandfather used to have a big brown teetar but that was tame and used to even walk around with us and every time my grandfather coughed or whistled, it would do its coo coo coocoocoos. The damn thing wouldnt do it when us kids tried to whistle or cough.

      Regarding the care, I believe just keep em like normal birds... I've seen people putting a chaddar on the cage at night,, probably in the winters... If they are tame, get them out often... I've seen peopel giving them bajra to eat. I'm sure there are other grains as well. Just keep em nice n warm in winters, and in shade in the summers, preferably somewhere not too warm... and dont starve them to death, make sure theres water there... and thats about it I guess.
