Pictures of Pheasant Housing/Run

post #1 of 229
Thread Starter 

I'd love to see pictures of everyone's pheasant runs and coops. I have some red goldens and would really like to set up their run to an ideal space for them. Would love to see how everyone has theirs set up. Thanks

We use alot of different pens.

http://i176.photobucket.com/albums/w172/spectrumranch/pens2.jpg

8 x 16 pens, used for various pheasant species.

double row (back to back) of 8 x 16 pens with 8 x 8 pens on this end for specific breeding pairs.

Round pens, used mainly for our rarer and tropical type pheasants. We have a bunch of these pens, but I don't have a good photo.

10 x 20 pens used for various ornamental pheasants.

48 ringneck breeder pens each 8 x 16. Can't see it in this photo- but the far end of these pens have a  roof over the back 5 feet for shelter and shade. I have not got this half done yet.

Wow that is a really nice set up for sure! You don't have issues with smaller animals squeezing through the wire? I didn't think anything could get through that was of danger but weasels proved me wrong. What breeds do you breed?

We do have issues with predators.

Owls were killing some pheasants thru the netting on top- taking them off the roost- so we lowered the roosts. OR most pens now have a roof over were the roosts are.

Mink got in and killed a few, but they have done alot more damage in the duck pens- seems the mink prefer ducks or geese (smaller wild types) if they have a chance to get either.

We are in the process of selling out almost all our Ringneck pheasants and cutting back on the others too. This is what we had going into breeding season 2009:

Red Golden
Yellow Golden
Dark Throated Golden
Cinnamon Splash Golden
Silver Golden
Splash Golden
Peach Splash Golden
Peach Golden
Lady Amherst
Cheer
Impeyan
Koklass
Blue Eared
Brown Eared
Grey Peacock
Palawan Peacock
Bornean Fireback
Malayan Fireback
Siamese Fireback
Silver
Swinhoe
Edwards
White Crested Kalij
Reeves
Ijima Copper
Elliot
Humes Bartailed
Mikado
Temminck Tragopan
Satyr Tragopan

Ringnecks:
Chinese
Chinese Jumbo
White Jumbo
Green
Black
White
Alaskan Snow
Blue Alaskan Snow
Buff Isabel
Buff
Red Buff
Chinese Pied
Green Pied
Buff Pied
Blackneck
Platinum
Chocolate
Blue
Blue Pied
Silver
Ivory

We usually try to keep more than one pen of each also. Some breeds we have several pens of.

Here is a photo of how we have roof over some of the 8 x 16 pens. The roof provides shade, protection from owls while on the roost & a dry spot to roost in the rain.

If the birds don't eat all the vegitation, it can also provide cover and shade.

Those are some really great pens. Are you like a zoo type place or private? I'd love to see some other peoples set ups too. I'm trying to figure out what kind of plants to put in with the pheasants.
