Apart from being beautiful there are several reasons people keep them:

Eggs
Feathers
Meat (pheasant-ish flavor)
Pets
and more

It can vary from person to person as to why they keep them.

Wow...more than I thought!
Do people sell the feathers?
Are they good egg layers?
One more question...what does pheasant taste like?
I thought it would be cool to have just a pair in the yard,but hubby says No way! He says they're too loud....

First cost might hurt a little Ethel has laid over 20 eggs that I sell for 10.00 apiece. She's setting on six herself right now. She and Pete are very intertaining and beautiful. Does everything have to be useful??
