You will find a variety of pheasants around the Farm. Our range includes Common, Gold, Silver, Amherst and Reeves. Pheasants are noted for their dramatic plumage and have been bred as game birds all over the world. In fact, they make such excellent game birds that they are the most hunted bird on the planet!
Almost all pheasants originally came from China and other parts of Asia. Whilst they can fly for short bursts, they are generally clumsy and stay on the ground.
The Reeve’s Pheasant is of particular note; finding itself in the 2008 Guinness Book of Records for the longest natural tail feathers of any bird; up to 2.4m.
