Phasianus colchicus

Chinese Ringneck Pheasants are probably the most popular hunting and game bird on the planet. They are striking birds, the males having very dramatic jewel-like coloring and long striped tails. The meat of Chinese Ringneck Pheasants is considered gourmet and is sort after by chefs and cooks.

These birds are often raised for release purposes, and although they are one of the most hunted birds, they have proved adaptable and resilient and are quite common in woods, brush, pastures, and meadows around the world. They also do very well in aviaries and on farms and homesteads, providing diversity, beauty, and a high-demand product.

If keeping Chinese Ringneck Pheasants in captivity, a well-protected aviary is necessary. Pheasant can fly away, and they also need protection from small predators like weasel and mink. There should be plenty of space, especially if housing more than one male, and brush piles or some scrubs should be provided as hiding places.

For hatching eggs, you will need either an incubator or a broody hen. We recommend a styrofoam tabletop style incubator for your first time hatching eggs. We recommend an automatic turner for 12 or more eggs.

Incubation Time: Chinese Ringneck Pheasant Eggs are small and light greenish-brown in color, with an incubation period of 23-26 days. Humidity should be kept at 45-50% until day 21, when it should be raised to 60-65% until the chicks hatch. Turning the eggs 3 times a day for the first 21 days is a solid practice. After day 21, stop turning the eggs.

Temperature/Humidity: Chinese Ringneck Pheasant Hatching Eggs will hatch best at 99.5 degrees F, decreasing to 98.5 degrees F during the final three days of incubation.

Special Incubation Notes: Start up your incubator 2-3 days before your eggs are due to arrive. This gives your incubator time to fully come to temperature and to stabilize humidity levels. It is also a good practice to let your newly arrived eggs rest at room temperature for about 12 hours before placing them in an incubator. Place them large side up in a clean and dry egg carton. Incubators should be kept in a room with a constant even temperature and out of the sun.
