Pheasants - Ornamental
Ornamental Pheasants for sale
There are many reasons to raise ornamental pheasants, not the least of which is their undeniable beauty. From the spectacular Red Gold Pheasant to the cold-loving Eared Pheasants there are almost endless species, color mutations and variations of pheasants. Common ornamental pheasants are hardy and require little care. They need shelter from wind and storms and room to move around, especially varieties like Lady Amherst which has exceptionally long tail feathers. Besides having enough space in their fly pens, pheasants need an area where they can shelter from wind and storms.
All pheasants are native to Asia, and ornamental pheasants come from all parts of the continent. Because pheasants are not native to North America, you should check your state's regulations before ordering. The two departments able to answer such questions are the Department of Natural Resources or the Fish and Wildlife Service.
