    this thread is being made so people can talk freely about their golden pheasants. i want to learn more about them from people who have them. my number one question is can you free range golden pheasants?

    Yes you can freerange Golden Pheasants....... as long as you have a string tied to their leg. They will take off faster than the salesman leaving the farmers house!
