I love pheasant! Unfortunately I know nothing about raising them. You have now got me thinking about raising them sometime in the future though.
I found this on Youtube.
http://youtu.be/zD5lMSFqpfQ Unfortunately this batch was killed by a raccoon(s) before he finished making the series of videos he had planned.
This was one of his comments.

Yes, a raccoon killed them. This would have been the third time I had raised pheasant to adults if they had survived. There isn't much to it, they simply need the proper feed, water, and the males need to be separated or released as they get older. Any feed store that sells the chicks in the spring should tell you all you need to know. Next summer my plans are to buy more.
