Swinhoe Pheasants have their origins in the forested mountain regions of Taiwan and are considered to be a rare breed due it’s decreasing habitat. The popularity of this bird continues to grow due to the fact that they adapt well to aviary settings, are easy to tame, and generally quite docile. They are most active in the early morning and late afternoon, roosting in the trees at nightfall.
Swinhoe Pheasants will require a large aviary that provides plenty of space and abundant trees and bushes for shade. However, they do not require a lot of shelter, as they are very hardy birds and will do quite well in hot or cold climates. They have a diet consisting mainly of seeds, grains, greens, grasses, berries, and grapes. You will want to supplement this diet with a standard game bird feed and a constant, fresh supply of water.
