Gene pool is small in the US, has been many, many years since fresh blood has been imported. Most of the captive birds already started from a small group in Europe. It is possible that like most species with small populations, the bottleneck may have been reached and we are on the upswing (or downswing)? Not sure. An interesting study for some grad student somewhere is to take samples of birds from both sides of the pond and see where we stand. !!
Thanks Charles and Nate!! E-mail me your problems with the site, don't post them here. [email protected] or call me 816-807-4748, don't appreciate your comments and not afraid to discuss them with you.
Private e-mail sent. We don't need to "dirty up" this forum with our problems that does not pertain to pktuan's post. What was requested was photographs of Edward's Pheasants. I posted photos of Edward's Pheasants & some brief facts.
I request that the moderator of the forum remove everything after the photos that were posted.
