Hi Everyone, got by accident a red golden pheasant hen 4 days ago. My neighbour called telling me their friends that live right in the middle of town, had a pheasant follow their car into their garage..... and let their little kids pick it up and carry around(I know doesn't really sound like a pheasant, right?). She wondered if they could bring me the bird since they can't keep it. I said sure. Long story short an hour later the family brought me this spoiled rotten pet red golden hen! She feels quite at home in a small crate in the house(my quarantine zone), doesn't mind being handled and eats all kinds of junk but not any of the proper feed. She seriously turns her nose up at the gamebird feed I feed to all my pheasants, then I thought maybe she is use to chicken scratch(whole grains) but she wont eat those either..... so she is on day 2 of no treats and only GB pellets and scratch offered to her and she wont touch it. I wonder what her past owners fed her, she doesn't seem familiar with what passes as "feed". She sees me walk thru my house with a plate in hand she gets all excited calling me and bobbing her head. She will eat any sort of people food and fruits, veggies etc that I offer by hand, mealworms as well, so I thought if I handfeed her the GB feed she might eat it... no go, or serve it on a plate.... no go too.... Any Ideas how to make proper feed appealing to this spoiled little brat? I am running out of Ideas. She seems very healthy, good weight, nice feathering, overall a nice example of the species. No Idea where she came from tho, to my knowledge there are no keepers/breeders in my local area and as tame as she is I am guessing indoor pet.
