BREED DETAILS- Satyr Tragopan (Tragopan satyra )
The Satyr tragopan is so called because of the satyr-like horns created from the head plumage.  These horns of feathers and the bright colors play an important role in the males’ elaborate mating display Females – pictured above left – are drab in appearance compared to the brightly colored males; this serves as camouflage, especially when nesting.
The satyr tragopan, also known as the crimson horned tragopan, is a member of the pheasant family which is found in the damp rhododendron and mixed forest of the central and eastern Himalayas. In the breeding season they are often found living between 2000 and 4250 metres above level. The tragopan is omnivorous feeding on insects, leaves, seeds and the shoots of new vegetation. Unlike most pheasants, which are predominantly ground living, satyr tragopans spend a considerable amount of their time in the trees even building their nests there. Tragopans are monogamous and spend the year in pairs. An elaborate courtship display by the male attracts the female to him, and after mating, the female lays 3-5 eggs which are incubated for approximately 28 days.

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.
