What type of things is best to put into an aviary to make a pheasant feel at home? We live in the woods and nothing grows here; so It can't be plant based. I thought about cutting some live limbs with leaves to use as cover.
I'm able to grow a few plants in each pen, but if you can't I would suggest putting some branches in. A few weeks ago our neighbor trimed some cedar, which isn't native here, in the pens and the birds loved it. I would suggest a short needled evergreen.
Can do with the short needle evergreen!! we have a bunch that need elevated! what types of things do you provide your birds to hide under in the event of bad weather? I currently have half of a plastic dog house in each pen.
I've got a dog house like house in each pen. They are raised so they can hang out under them, and I feed them there, might try to get a picture. They also go in them. Have some peices of ply-wood leaning around. What types of pheasants do you have? I've got Silver's, Red Goldens and Lady Amhersts. Generally these breeds are very hardy.
Here are some pics of the houses and the cedar after a few weeks.
^this is a good view of the Red Golden pen, I was trying to get a picture of the pheasant.
