Raising pheasants was a task we decided to take on this summer, and our trials and errors ended up teaching us many things. We ordered 500 birds to arrive in three different batches at varying times throughout the summer. The birds came as real young chicks through the mail, of which we then placed into surrogates until they were big enough to release.
Our goal with these birds is to use them for training, as well as hunting come fall. Raising your own pheasants is a great way to have live birds for your own training, as well as for pleasure. Hopefully this podcast episode will help any one who is thinking about or already does raising pheasants, as we will be discussing what worked for us and what didn’t work.
Also, a HUGE THANK YOU to the Turnpike Troubadours for allowing us to use a snippet from one of our all-time favorite songs The Bird Hunter. Make sure to check out their music, they are a favorite of ours.
