So lately I've been checking around for exotic pheasants and I came across some really amazing birds run So this year I plan to get a few pheasants to add to my mini zoo. Here a few that I plan to get. Anyone own any or know of a trust worthy hatchery that carry these birds? Nothing is more devastating then opening a box to dead birds. Thanks Andy



tragopan satyra I would name the male Jean Simmons

Andy. the red golden are pretty easy to get as they are one of the more friendly and many breeders have them.. The Lady Amherst are also,but a little harder to find but not much and easy also. The other two are harder to get.. Try Doug at D M farms on this forum as he had more info on some of teh others and try google to get more info. Some dont do well in your area.. I keep a few with my peafowl to add a little color ( of red ) They hatch pretty good and need the same care as any other chick, keep them warm adn have plenty of room as they can be canabilistic. A lot of the hatcheries sell these but many times someone else hatches and ships them to you.. Good luck connerhills

Not sure about the tragopans, but the others are pretty easy to find. I have both red goldens and amhersts. We also have silvers, swinhoes, and melanistic ringnecks (whuch are beautiful) I have seen impeyans at a few bird shows and plan on getting some in the future. Good luck, I love our pheasants and our peafowl.
