    I have a young Lady Amherst pheasant and I was wondering just how long their life expectancy is and also how long will a cock be fertile?

    Hi
    lady amherst will live along time 7 or 8years or more ifthey are well cared for,as they start molting the males will start losing fertility,so if you sell eggs this is agood time tostop selling eggs at this time, put them inyour incubator,so you dont waste them,males seem to differon how fertile they. I have had birds lose fertilty,after dropping acouple of tail feathers and some losing all their tail feathers and still be fertile.I have lady amherst,dark throat golden,peach golden and mountain quail.
