I think I need to seriously look at raising pheasants this next year. Does anyone have any experience with these birds that they can share please? I had to run over to the pharmacy after my doctors appointment to get a prescription filled. The pharmacy is inside the grocery store here, so I was wandering around looking at meat prices while waiting. I saw that they had pheasants. I was shocked though when I saw the price for them. They averaged $25.00 per bird. It was $7.99 lb, and the birds averaged between 3.5 & 4 lbs. Is this an average price for these in other areas also? Then I got to the turkey section. I don't pay much attention to the "butterballs" (.29 lb), but rather the "Natural" birds. The prices averaged $60.00 for a 16 lb bird. Those of you that raise turkeys, do you have trouble trying to get these kind of prices from customers at all?
