    Try your local Craigslist, ask at the feed store, or place a want add. With all the young birds hatched and being raised right now, I bet you'll find a source in short order![​IMG]

    Hey jimmythechicken!

    Are you looking for pheasants for pets or to eat? I am asking because I have a young (6 weeks old) Ring Necked Pheasant. I believe it is female. She was a packing peanut in my MPC order..a surprise yes! I didn't know what kind of bird I had until a couple of weeks ago, so she has been raised with chickens. I know she needs her own aviary, but I just finished the coop and haven't had time to build it yet! I have considered rehoming her as long as she ends up as a pet and not in the freezer. I live in Maine which isn't too far from CT. I'd love to see her with other gamebirds or peafowl...I'm sure she's be much happier.
