Tips and tricks for breeding "Silver Pheasants"

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Good day everyone!

 

I am having a difficult time in getting the silver pheasants to breed.  I have scoured the net but all information seems very vague.  What type of housing do they like?  Diet - Fruits and grains - but what exactly would be best for the birds and to coax them into the season? Would live foods help?  

We don't have any pheasant pellets available.

 

Anyone with success in this area, all and any guidance will be very welcome!

 

Thanks!!

I have never seen my birds breed but I do get chicks.Maybe they don't like you watching them.hahaha.All pheasants love peanut(unsalted only)and sometimes the male will pick up a nut and offer it to his lady friend.Live mealworms,crickets,veggies,fruit,(no grapes as I fed some to my trags and the male choked on it and died in my hands)if you do feed grapes cut them up so they don't choke.Same for any fruit or veggie they can choke on.And they need to be fed a gamebird feed as it has meds for blackhead which is deadly to pheasants.

How old are your birds?
