    they are a monal pheasant
    native to Himalaya mountain range
    dig like crazy
    very cold tolerant, not crazy about the heat
    pretty pricey
    dont lay a ton of eggs per year
    pretty much are second year birds
    if fertile, they hatch fairly well, same temps as any other species
    added treats go a long way with starting them, and keeping them for that matter
    heavy covered pen is really key in breeding and keeping them happy
    problem is, they'll dig up everything
    not very aggressive like a lot of species
    do best away from domestic fowl

    No , dont have any pics of my old birds, dont have them right now, use to keep them in the 90's.
    A lot of people have great luck with them as far as tameness. Mine were always very gentle and not flighty at all, but wouldnt let you touch them.
    Have heard of a lot of peole getting them to eat out of their hands though.
