Is it OK to bathe pheasants in the summer? How can i tame chicks?
As with any animal, handle them obsessively, feed them, get them used to you. Some types of pheasants tame down easier than others.
I may be mistaken, but I'm fairly confident that you should never, ever bathe your bird (unless you're touching them up for the show table). Healthy pheasants will take their own dust baths if you provide a bucket of pot ash/sand/dirt, and will look lovely all on their own. Feathers don't react well to water and you will end up with a miserable bird that will be chilled - especially this time of year.
I show mine...
Do Not Bathe Gamebirds
Keep Them In A Clean Dry Pen Of Appropriate Size And Like A Cat They Will Keep Themselves Clean
I was going to give them a dust bath!!
Giving a bird a dust bath is akin to helping a cat lick their fur clean. It's a task best left to the bird
Yep!! Checkout my hatching and Raising Goldens post!!
I LOVE IT!
Do you know if Purely Poultry sells PURE Goldens? Go to their website, and go to ornamental pheasant category.
