I love birds, and I'm going to go into breeding. I'm a fancy bird type of person, and am usually looking for the unique species or breeds.
I've seen people who own pheasants, and I've seen pheasants at shows. They caught my eye, but I know why most people own them (for meat).
They're so beautiful, that I wouldn't want to own them for meat. I'd like to keep them either in a very large pen or running around my yard. And I'd own them for breeding.
But I can't really find too much information about keeping pheasants as pets.
If I clipped their wings, would they stick around? I'd love to have such a beautiful bird in my yard.
Basically, I'm looking for all the information I can about them. When they breed, can the eggs be incubated, their temperament, are they tamable, what's a good price for them, do they stick around like chickens?
They're gorgeous birds, and I hope you can keep them for something other than meat (not judging anyone who does keep them for meat!)
