    I use perfect peepers from cutler supply. They work great but i wouldnt put them on your pheasants til they are 6 weeks old at least. Also with only three babies i wouldnt think you would need them. i only use them when i have 20+ pheasants in a pen.

    Have to agree. Red goldens normally are not aggressive and with only three you shouldn't need them.

    Why would you put a nose ring in a bird? That seems odd.

    I've often thought of piercing some of the ears of the chickens with hangy earlobes tho. Just kidding!
