History [ edit ]

There are 35 different species of Pheasants being the Common Pheasant the most popular.

Pheasants are by nature very suspicious of humans. They can get used to one owner that usually feeds them and takes care of them, but it’s difficult to get their trust.

Most owners seek in pheasants the opportunity to create new colors and patters.

Pheasants are sexually dimorphic birds: the females have duller plumage, while males have exuberant colorations.

The most prominent traits of pheasants are the wattles and the tail, besides obviously the vivid and diversified color.

The Common Pheasant is one of the most hunted birds in the world. Being native to Asia, it was introduced in many regions, like Europe, to be a game bird.
