    My pheasant are the most filghty birds I have ever seen! They are only a day over 2 weeks and can literrally fly out of a 4 foot brooder box. They usually do it after I take my hand out eith their food.

    Better get a cover on the brooder. They will be all over the place in no time. By two weeks, they do start flying pretty well. Good luck with them.

    I already have a top on the brooder, its when I was moving them to the bigger one I had to take the top off. I caught them when they were coming down though.
