    Hello everyone! It's been a long time! Since I was on the board regularly, I have been remarried, adopted my wife's son, and we had a baby about four weeks ago. I also have started raising goats and rabbits and have just started getting back into birds.

    I have been getting set up to raise game birds. I currently own a quad of Arctic Snow pheasants (color variation on ringnecks) and also some chukars and pigeons. Most of these birds I acquired to train my bird dog, but now I would like to start breeding birds again (I think once you have the bug you always have it. It's an addiction.)

    Glad to have you with us! Cots are easy peasy. I understand Bobs can be a bit of a hassle. When you say pheasants, you are entering a very large and diverse world. I would definitely post your question in the PHEASANTS forum in the OTHER POULTRY section. Lots of great info and experienced posters there.
