A few pics of my Silver and Swinhoe Pheasants,

I have always run them in trios without any drama, takes the heat off one female if the cock gets a bit too full on.

Ha ha I wouldn't say great pics, iPhone Camera hates movement so it distorts a bit..... But I have got myself a new Cannon camera so I can take some decent pics finally! Thanks though, I like seeing everyone else's pics so thought I better start sharing some more of my own!

Haha my only camera at the moment is my iPhones one. That's why I haven't uploaded many of my own photos because every pheasant looks like a blur :hmmm:

Swinhoes are my second favorites but for me the Firebacks are #1
Now I know where another option for Swinhoe and Silver bloodlines is .

Another pair of Silvers.

Unfortunately due to moving house in the next month, I had to move on most of the pheasants, but once settled I am hoping to get at least a pair of each back! At the moment I only have a free range Swinhoe cock and Golden Hen!

Cheers everyone,

I believe that to keep and breed healthy birds you have to have neat, clean cages. Salmon I really am looking forward to building the collection up once we move. One of the first things I plan on doing is enclosing a whole garden area on one side of the house for the Mandarin ducks and Curlews, then I am going to add Satin Bower birds and Green Catbirds. Can't wait!

Kieth I will keep in touch with you regarding contacts, The guy that got my breeding trios is now suddenly "out of contact" and I have a bad feeling about it all, but hopefully they are doing ok!

Any hints on looking for good silvers? Do they have any issues like the banded Goldens?
Your planned planted out enclosure sounds good.
Bush stone curlews are nice birds, they look like little road runners, meep meep.
