    How do you guys keep your pheasants from breaking off their tails?

    Good question! I don't know the answer but would like to know myself. I have month olds and their baby tails are looking a little ratty right now because they are a little overcrowded. Should be done with the pheasant pen tonight though and they will have a lot of room then.

    They need a huge pen.Most break them off from turning around in a small pen and when a penmate steps on it.
