Hi i have been offered a pair of elliot pheasants.

But another breeder has told me to avoid them as the male will be very aggressive towards the hen.

Has anyone any advise on keeping them and what they need and would the male be the same as a Reeve male with a hen in aggresive ways or more.

Thanks

It depends on the bird.Some not all reeves,silvers and eliots can be aggressive.If thats the breed you want,get another hen and make a trio.This way during breeding season (if he is aggressive)he is spreading the aggression to 2 birds and not 1 bird.I have a trio and my male has never shown any aggres sion at all.
In N.H.,Tony.

We have a pair. They do not seem to be as bad as the reeve's but I have not had mine during the breeding season so I am not sure. Mine are a little skittish, but are warming up.
