They are amazing little critters. If it weren't for the need to incubate them artificially - I would consider them the perfect SS animal. But, I've heard of incubating them under a silkie so that might be an alternative. They grow fast, lay quickly, are easy to process and I've never had a sick one. Not saying they don't occasionally commit suicide when they escape their pen, lol.Amazing how fast they grow and mature! That's faster than a tomato! LOL
Funny how that happens! And then there's the crazy human that helps the multiplication process by putting eggs in the incubator.... ARGH! It's an illness I tell ya!Watch them multiply...…..
there are wild pheasants around not as many as there used to be since the neighbors have hunted them, but all summer we can hear one making the rounds of their territory through the fields and along the hedge. once in a while they would come in the yard but not too often. i can see them out in the fields in the winter sometimes. a lot of them get hit by cars.I haven't had pheasant in decades....I am so old. Lol
i think for our spot it was the change in habitat availability.There are no Bob White quail here either. I remember hearing them when I was a kid and I sure miss them. They say it's because of fire ants, but you don't have fire ants where you are..... I've thought about raising them to turn loose and restock them as wildlife.
