    My male melanistic mutant got out yesterday night, I must have not shut the gate properly. I was just wondering is there any chance he will come back or is he gone for good?Does anyone have any good experience with this kind of scenario

    Thanks- SQ

    Sorry he got out. I hope he does come back for you. Some boys love their girls and come home!

    I really hope he comes back, Melanistics are pretty rare in British Columbia either that or hopefully he left me some fertile eggs [​IMG]

    I've been told pheasants will rush a gate when you try to enter. Is this true?

    No,just the opposite they will run for cover.
