    Hello. Found what looks like an old english pheasant fowl today in Livermore. Will be gradually introducing this young looking bird into already established flock. Advice appreciated.

    [​IMG]The pheasant may bring unwanted visitors with him ie., lice, mites, ticks - will you quarantine him before adding to your flock

    Greetings from Kansas, crittersitter, and [​IMG]! Pleased you joined us! I agree with drumstick - quarantine him for some time - you wouldn't want to get your other birds sick. I have heard this should be as long as 3-4 weeks. I'd also inspect him for parasites. Good luck to you!
