    You do not have to have a permit to raise Ringnecks only if you are going to sell them and this is for every state because they are gamebirds. You shouldn't need to have a permit for Ornamental Pheasant because they are not native to the US.

    Here in Oklahoma it is $45.00 a year, the only catch is that the Game Warden comes to inspect your place to see what you are raising and he gives you the permits that you fill out every time you sell Ringneck Pheasants, Chicks or Eggs.

    I would call the Illinois Game & Wildlife Department and see what they say it could be more expensive and they may have more rules.

    Each State Has Their Own Permitting Requirements (or Not) And Prices Depending On Their Requirements. Some States You May Need Multiple Permits Depending On Your Goals (ie... Posession Permit To Own And Propagation Permit To Breed And In Some A Permit To Sell Eggs Or Birds) It Gets Complicated In Some Places And The Only Way For You To Be Sure Is To Contact The Folks Who Enforce It [​IMG]
