    we will be looking for several breeds of ornamental pheasants this year I hope. I can get most any of them from the Gambird Gazzette Magazine, but would prefer to give my business to fellow BYC members if possible.
    Near GA would be nice, but if you by chance sell eggs or chicks, that will work for shipping, I would prefer to pick up older birds or at least have them within a short shipping distance.
    Let us know if you or any of your buddies have any of the below, even if your breed isnt listed, let me know what you have, I am game for anything!
    Thanks guys
    Aubrey


    Looking for any color of:

    Tragopans
    Impeyans
    Peacock Pheasants
    Golds, amherst, silvers or kalij
    Mikados
    elliots
    edwards
    eared (blue or white)

    You get the idea!

    Too bad I just sold almost all of my pheasants. I had silvers, goldens, reeves, and amhersts. I sold the goldens and reeves and am trying to sell the rest of the silvers. I think the amhersts are going to stay here with my mother so I can tell her you would be interested in eggs in the spring. I am in Washington so the eggs would have to be shipped.

    Thanks Tony,
    That's what I'm talking about,
    If you dont mind, send me your prices for this coming years birds, especially if you get any palawans!!
    I'd really rather by chicks any way, it's a lot safer on the pheasants, their eggs just dont tend to ship well.
    PM or E-Mail me whne you have some idea on 09 birds and a price.
    I am finishing up the new bantam condo/ mansion
    the phesants will be next, so this years hatch would be great.
    I use to have most all of these, but had to sell off years ago and have missed them ever since!
    Thanks for the post!
