Manchurian / Ringneck Cross
An excellent flight bird, the Manchurian/Ringneck Cross is similar in size and weight to Chinese Ringnecks. The mature Manchurian Cross cock weighs approximately 3.25 lbs. and the hen weighs 2.5 lbs. on average. They are cross between our Chinese Ringneck and the pure Manchurian Ringneck which we imported, as eggs, from China in 1989. MacFarlane is the only farm to import pure Manchurian eggs and have the pure Manchurian bloodline. Pure Manchurian pheasants are well-known for their wildness and the Manchurian cocks have a small distinctive white feather on the sides of their heads near the ear. After crossing the Pure Manchurian with the Chinese Ringneck we found it produced a very hardy and vigorous bird that is great for hunting.
