I had never seen an Impeyan before the post a few down. They are such a beautiful bird. I have been doing some research and it is said that they are noisy. Are they too noisy to have in an urban setting? What does their call sound like? Would you feed and pen an Impeyan the same way as a Ringneck?
Any other bit of information or a link to an educational web site would be much appreciated.

nope not the same as a ringneck...they perch...tend to need more space. they eat about the same though.

Depends on your urban setting I guess...kinda goes with the what folks get away with in terms of chickens

I do not have any yet, but what I have read they dig more than other pheasant species. The book suggest to place fencing around plants, laying on the soil, that are in the enclosure. This way they cannot dig up the plants. I would think that they would not make as much noise as a rooster or a peacock but more than hens.
Also I read they need 200+ square feet for a pair, but as always the more room the better.

I raise them and feel that they have a very high pitched squeal especially when spooked. If you have neighbors it may be a problem. I dont recommend them for your climate though, they do better in the east where there is freezing temps and snow...........

Ray Sexton in Arizona raised them for years.But he lived up in the mountains.I believe he got out of pheasants,not positive on that.
