    I just recently got a a male and a female ringneck pheasant. Will they get along? Will they become tame enough to where I can let them out of their cage and back in? What are some key tips to raising them? They are pets only.

    Pheasants are wild. They will get used to you and other people but it will be very unlikely one will ever let you touch it. unless you catch it first.
    If you are just raising the pair and plan to get rid of the little ones Yours will get gentle but not tame. They do require at min 20 sq feet per bird of secure covered pen. If you let the out say bye! They can fly big time.
