My Brother In-Law got some pheasant eggs last year & a Bantam hen hatched them. The offspring were raised with the chickens and this year a male pheasant & a chicken produced these.
Hmmm. This brings several things to mind [G]. Most of my chickens are of breeds that tend toward broodiness. Wonder what I could trick them into doing...
The reason this is possible is because chickens are out of pheasants, Red and Green Jungle Fowl. They make good brood hens but the cock are very often man fighters.
Do you think there is a possibility they may be sterile as in a mule's case? They look cool.
I just came across this thread...how cool!
Joanna, do you have some updated pics? Those birds are really gonna be something special. Would love to see how they progress.
Not planning a visit until the end of November. I will take some more pictures then.
Dear joannabanana, can they fly?
Would be nice if they could, you could make a fortune on a shoot day!
A brace of them and you would not need to buy a chicken for Sunday lunch or a pheasant as a treat LOL.
