    Quote:Yes they are real.

    No I did not make them. I have bought alot of different hybrids over the years as I find them very interesting.

    Hybrid Pheasants are the result of breeding two pheasants from DIFFERENT family groups and are usually sterile. For example breeding a Ringneck (true pheasant family) and a Reeves pheasant (long tailed pheasant family) will produce offspring which I have found to be infertile.

    Crossed Pheasants are the result of breeding two pheasants from the SAME family group and are capable of reproducing. For example the most common crossed pheasants are Golden & Lady Amherst, both are in the RUFFED PHEASANT family. When breed together the offspring are fertile to reproduce.

    I do not like breeding pheasants to produce crosses, but I DO NOT have a problem with hybrids.

    I have thousands of pictures of birds & animals, just takes time to find them, crop, resize, upload, post.... so only as I get time.
