    Hello, I was wondering if I need a permit to keep oheasants in ohio. The person I got them never mentioned anything about them. I was talking with someone and they said I needed one. So do I?

    I would contact your local Fish and Game Department. They can let you know the specific laws regarding owning native or non-native species.

    You do not need a permit to keep the ornamentals(Goldens,Amherst,Silvers etc)but you do need a permit to keep Ringnecks.

    Yes ,you need a permit for ringnecks, I keep one ,cost 40.00 per year ,if you sell eggs or birds. You must have the person permit # where you got your birds or egg.

    The one permit is good for all gamebirds and game animals.
