    Are dust baths required for the health of pheasants? Also,, what about water? Does their feathers need to be misted? Thanks

    No dust baths aren't required but recommended.This is the easiest way to dust them for mites,just sprinkle the powder on their dust spot and they will do it themselves.No misting is not required.
