    I don't think we should keep pheasants because they can just fly away. any reasons we should get pheasants?[​IMG]

    They need to be kept in an enclosed pen so they cannot "fly away" All species of pheasants are beautiful and fun to raise. It's always best to do your homework first and read up on them as much as you can. Stick with the basic breeds first. They are much cheaper and easier to raise if your just starting out. Theres a lot of cross breeding between species of pheasants, so if and when you purchase your birds, make sure you do so from a reliable breeder. I don't think your be disappointed with them.

    I have a beautiful pair of red gold pheasants for sale. Almost old enough to lay. They are very hardy birds and I think you would enjoy watching them.
