I have two little golden pheasants (more in the incubator), about 3 weeks old in my covered brooder and I need to getting the housing plan finalized. My original plan was to just make a nice covered run onto my empty 4 x 8 walk in coop but got to thinking that well, maybe having something smaller and not a walk in would be better. If I really start liking pheasants and want to get other types, it would be nice to have some uniformity. I'm in the arctic (north Dakota) so I figure an actual place they can get inside would be necessary; most of the plans I've seen are just a covered run with one end with solid walls (I think I would have pheasant-sicles). I want to have a nice 12 x 12 or 16 x 16 covered run but also have maybe a 4 x 4 basic shelter of some type in there, maybe around 3-4' tall with a roof that lifts up. The big question is, would they use it? Might be a silly question, idk. The other half of it would be, if I had the shelter about 1-2' off the ground, would they use a ramp?
