BREED DETAILS- Temmink's tragopan Pheasant (Allandoo Pheasantry )
This brightly coloured bird is often regarded as the most beautiful species in the pheasant family. The male’s bright orange chest and pale blue face contrasts greatly against the female tragopan with its dull grey and brown plumage. Temminck’s are notoriously shy birds and unlike most pheasants they prefer to nest in trees. This species of tragopan is named after the Dutch zoologist Coenraad Jacob Temminck. Native across South Asia, from southwest China to northwest regions of Burma and Vietnam. DIET Their diet consists mainly of berries, grass and plants. They gather their food from the forest floor.LIFECYCLE These birds live in solitude until they find a mate. Breeding season lasts from March to April after which time the female will lay 3-5 eggs. The young are raised solely by the female tragopan and are walking and feeding within a few hours of hatching.
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.
