Our Birds

 

Pheasants

 
The back bone of a successful shoot, pheasants are game birds with superior flight and adaptability characteristics. In order to achieve this quality we raise the birds from one day old using an English style grass raising technique. This technique enables them to acclimate when they are very young.
 
At eight weeks of age the birds are transferred into a series of fight pens which span over trees and planted cover.
 
The key for survival in pheasants is their natural ability to roost in the trees at night to avoid ground predators. The pens we construct encourage roosting, which in turn builds great strength in their wings. The birds have minimal contact with humans to keep their environment as natural as possible.
