Pheasents as pets?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Is it possible?

I would like to hand raise a male golden pheasent as a pet then put it in the coop later, but is this actually feasible? Has anyone else raise pet pheasents? Are males as mean as some cocks? I have heard and seen terrible things from mean male chickens. I'd hate for a male pheasent to be the same.

Also, if 2 males of different types are raised together, will they still fight when adult? (Golden and impeyan) or dothey only fight if females are around?

How large should a minimum coop/run be for golden pheasants?

Not long ago, I saw a photograph of a young girl with a male Reeves's pheasant that looked to be sitting comfortably in her lap, so I'm guessing that it is possible to have pheasants as 'pets'.

You would need to spend lots of time with them to get them comfortable with you,and then maybe you can work on taming them enough petable.You can raise many males together as long as there are no hens around.

A 6x12 will house a pair of birds nicely,and bigger is always better.

My coop/run plans are to be 12x18. I would lie about 3 chickens for eggs, but would really like a male golden pheasent as a pet. I could raise him inside but once he gets older can spend most of his time in the coop/run.

Is this feasible?

That could certainly be feasible given you spend the time to get him used to you. Female chickens will work as long as they are in separate pens. I have never raised chickens and pheasant together just as a general rule.
