    Hi I am thinking about getting 3 Lady Amherst pheasats this spring or early summer. I was wondering could I feed them chicken feed or would I have to buy a pheasant feed? Here is the pen I plan on building to keep them in https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=228628 it is the very first 8 x 16 pen, i will have a roof over it. If anybody can sell me a trio of them please post it on here. Please post some other stuff you know about Lady Amherst and i am 14. Thankyou

    Try Don Hungsinger in Montrose or Bill Lloyd in Marion Center.Your better off feeding them gamebird feed.Don't forget fruits,veggies and peanuts every once in a while.I will have amherst in the spring,but try Don or Bill first,shipping is way to expensive.
    In N.H.,Tony.

    I'M BETTING THE ANSWER IS NO?

    THEY WONT BITE... RATHER THEY WILL FLEE FROM YOU WITH EVERYTHING WITHIN THEIR POWER. THESE ARE WILD ANIMALS--- BIRDS TO BE SPECIFIC. NOT A PUPPY. THEY REQUIRE SPECIAL HOUSING AND CARE.
