My pheasants moved into their new digs last night (And are very happy). So I went out and finally got some pictures of them to confirm what color they are. The carton said black mute which I interpret to be black melanistic mutant. Is that what they look like to you? I am pheasant stupid and still learning. BTW - their new grow out pen (for now) is a 60 - 70 square foot hoop pen. That should be enough for 9 pheasants for now shouldn't it? They are 5 weeks old.
