    What does got them gone mean? Did they die?

    If they're day old, I'd use paper towels till they know what food is. They need a high protein game bird starter for the first few weeks. About 28% protein.
    After the first few days you can switch to pine shavings for bedding.

    Sorry I don't know anything about pheasants. You can put "Pheasant thread" in the search box above and it should pop up for you.
