It is also connected to its western tantamount, the Red-legged Partridge, Alectoris Rufa. Normally their territories are rocky open hillsides and mainly they are found at an altitude of 2000 to 4000 m. But in Pakistan they are also observed at 600m. They do not live in humid and rainy areas. Usually Chakor travels in groups of 5 to 30 and the groups are called coveys. They like wide variety of seeds and insects as food and sometimes they also swallow the dust particles. The seeds of Eragrostis in Kashmir are their favorite diet.
