    Pheasants are susceptible to the same things that peafowl and turkeys get... If you don't think it respiratory I would be highly suspicious of blackhead or capillary worms. Has it lost weight? What does the poop look like? I think pheasants are more stoic than peafowl, so I would treat this as a life threatening emergency.

    It could be CRD
    Give the bird some-------- tylan
    Shot or powder

    If the bird has CRD, it will always have it and will pass it on to all eggs and chicks
