    Hi and welcome to BYC.

    Once you have made 20 posts you will be able to participate in the Buy/Sell/Trade forum, but its worth taking a look there to see the kind of breeds that are available.

    All the best

    Do people mainly buy them for eye candy? I would think they are too expensive to eat. You could put "Ornamental pheasants," in the search box and see what comes up. In the "Other Backyard Poultry," forum you will find threads for pheasants among others.

    Thanks I'm still getting the hang of it. No I suppose if you wanted to eat them I guess you could. My brother has some lady Amherst's, yellow golden,buff Isabella. And some ring necks but I think there way to beautiful to eat. But yeah I will try the search thanks.

    Besides the pheasant chicks does anyone know if anyone has any muscovy ducklings for sale. In Minnesota around otter tail county. Or if someone is willing to ship. They are so hard to find any suggestions and thanks again.

    Also looking for Minnesota call ducklings. i Don't wanna buy them from a hatchery's because they want you to buy so many. I only want a few I had a pair but I had an animal get in and well long story short I don't have any. But I did get the animal it was a skunk. So I had to put chicken wire on all the bottoms of the cages. But I would love to get a few ducklings any suggestions.[​IMG]
