    Pheasant and Winter

    Thank you! I am thinking one of the males will eventually become dinner, I have been hesitant as I fear as soon as I clean one, the other one will die for some odd reason and I will be left with just a hen. I've taken out a rowdy rooster (chicken) or two only to have that happen lol

    About to jump in

    We have chickens and love them. They are quirky and provide eggs, which we love! I hunt and really enjoy eating quail, so thinking about raising Bobwhites for meat. I thought I would build a 3 compartment hutch. One would be for my breeders and the other two for the meat birds. There is a...
