The most popular of breeds, our Ringneck pheasant is used primarily for stocking and hunting. The weight of our Ringnecks at maturity (22 weeks) is 2.7-3 lbs. for the cocks and 1.7-2.2 lbs. for the hens.
These hardy birds adapt readily to the wild and are prized by sportsmen for their excellent flying ability and brilliant colors. For years our Ringnecks were primarily blue backed pheasants with yellow flanks. We are transitioning our Ringnecks to have more green (along with the blue) on their backs, and to have deep yellow to orange flanks.
Livability and performance will not change with the slight color transition. The two pictures below show the range of coloration of our 2017 Ringnecks.
