Grouse or Chicken....
Who Really Cares?

- Black grouse and Red grouse are two of the types of grouse that are found in England.
- Grouse are part of the pheasant family.
- Grouse are found in the Americas and in Europe.
- The different sexes are lightly different colors.
- Grouse are not bright animals.
- The most colorful part of the grouse is around the eyes.  They get really colorful when it's time to mate.
- They're really popular game birds.
- A brace of grouse is the same as a pair. So if you have a brace of a couple pairs of grouse, you would have eight birds..
- Red grouse populations crash every 4 to 8 years.  The cause was discovered in 1999 when scientists discovered that the populations crashed because of parasitic worms.
