So I just acquired my first pheasant. I ended up with him because he was being crammed into a small rabbit cage with a hen by my friend, who was illegally keeping them in the town he lives. They were never let outside, spent all their time crammed in a cage so tiny they couldn't even move past each other, and never had a really steady supply of food. I finally talked my friend into giving the hen to me (the whole story is another thread so I won't go into it here) and when I saw him I couldn't just leave him in those conditions so I took him too. I did read that you aren't supposed to keep them with chickens but at this point the damage is done. So he's in quarantine with the hen and I need help. I don't even know what breed he is; I'll have to post a picture so you guys can help me with that. I will try to find a local person who owns pheasants to take him but I doubt I'll have any luck, so in the meantime: What do I feed him? Can he eat layer feed? I think that's what the friend was feeding him. Can he freerange? I already clipped him to keep him in the quarantine pen. What are some general things I should know about pheasants to help care for him? Any advice is really appreciated. Thanks in advance.
