BREED DETAILS- Brown Eared Pheasant (Crossoptilon mantchuricum )
Males and females will look the same and as they grow the male will change to a beautiful set of colors. They were first produced in Wisconsin by Louie B. after he passed his son Lonnie took over and rebuilt the coops and I should be getting some stock indirectly from him. The birds color reminds me of a cockatoo's coloring. Males have a lot of white set off by a yellowish/golden breast and body and a full peachy colored ruff. The head crest of a male is yellow gold color and under the eye is a marking similar to the Lady Amherst male but it is a yellow color (drop).There is no barring or stripes and the peach ruff has light barring in a white buff color, and the tail and wings are white. Females are less dramatic with color and are white/cream colored.I was also told that the first peach was a mutation off of the cinnamon golden. That information came from a breeder in South Dakota that hung out with Lonnie in some swap meets in Minnesota. When breeding with this unique kind, please understand that the offspring will not be all peach, and some will turn to splash as they molt.

      In principle, pheasants are looked after in the same way as chickens. First you need to build and equip a poultry house. It should consist of two territories:
      • Closed room.
      • Outdoor walking area.
        In a closed house, perches should be established. They are made of wood. The floors are covered with straw or grass, and also sprinkled with sand. Pheasants can walk outside in spring and summer. Almost all breeds are very cold-tolerant, so do not expose birds to the risk of illness. If you have pheasants for breeding, then settle them with families. Each should have one male and three or four females. Birds incubate eggs for up to 40 days. On day 20, it is better to take the eggs and place them in an incubator. The temperature in it should be approximately + 38 ° C, and the humidity should not exceed 80%. If you do not have an incubator, you can donate the eggs to chickens or ducks to incubate. If you keep pheasants solely for decoration, then one male and a female will be enough.
