This study has been carried out to investigate the effects ol rations containing different level of proteins on egg production, reproduction and hatchability characteristics of partridges. Partridges in groups one and two were fed rations including 24 and 17 % crude protein respectively. Egg yields of partridges in groups one and two were found as 34.16 and 23.75 egg/partridges (P<0.001). Average values of fertility, hatchability and hatchability of lertil eggs were determined as 96.90 and 93.21 %, 78.47 and 76.90 %, 80.97 and 82.51 % in groups respectively. There were significant differences between Ihe group mean values in only fertility (P<0.01). As a result of this study, it was determined thai least using rations containing 24 % crude protein should be use in breeding partridges.
