    I wouldn't do it. A flighty bird that likes to scratch and dig, give them a large run on the ground.

    I agree with Dan, no pheasant should be subjected to life in a wire cage, especialy ringnecks. All pheasants are by nature "wild birds". They are all beautiful and fun to raise, but they should be allowed to live their life in an enviroment as close to natural as possible. I really don't believe that you would have too much luck breeding them on wire.
