hi. i dont come to this page very often, so maybe it has been asked and answered in the past. if so i am sorry for repeated questions. at what age would you butcher ringnecks ? or better asked , what would be the youngest age to butcher, what age is recommended by most who have done so ?...do you feather pluck or skin them ?........also, if i am to keep some pheasants for own stock, is it best to keep male who feathered out earlier & a bit more aggressive in pen, instead of the slower developing ones, for breeding purposes ? ...thank you for any info you can give.
