    I understand why people have chickens, ducks, and quail but am curious why raise chucker, partridge and pheasant? KIs it because they are pretty or ???

    True. There are probably as many reasons for having pheasants and chukar as there are for having ducks and chickens. [​IMG]

    Thats what I'm wanting to know. Why? I have considered getting one of them but need more reason than that they are pretty.

    Our ornamental pheasants are raised just because they are beautiful birds and we sell off the offspring. We also sell a lot of our ringneck pheasants & quail, but some are butchered - very tasty!!

    Many are raised for preservation purposes.

    If you don't see the beauty in these birds you probably shouldn't be messing with them anyway.

    We raise Ringnecks and Melanistics for hunt clubs, field trials, taxidermy, hunters training their dogs and now I have a few falconers that get some birds to train their hawks and falcons.
