I have heard repeatedly that pheasants can not be kept free range like chickens. I have also heard that they can be free ranged just like chickens if you use a domestic hen to hatch pheasant eggs. I feel that if I use this method I can get pheasants to be free ranged and have them come back to be closed up for the night just as I do chickens. Like I said, I have heard both sides argued with confidence. Would I be waisting my time if I give it a try?
