Raising pheasants is a profitable business if done correctly. Game birds are always in high demand.
You can buy pheasant eggs at $250 for 360 eggs, pheasant chicks at $5.00-$7.50 depending on the age, or adult pheasants at $10.75-$16.00 each to use as breeders.
Pheasants can be raised on small acreage and, as it is seasonal, they can offer you a good balance to other farming activities.
A pair of breeding pheasants costs upwards of $45; rarer birds like Siamese Firebacks are at the top of the range and the most difficult to breed and cost $550.00 per pair
If you want to rather try your hand at rearing pheasant chicks, you can buy pheasant hatching eggs in large quantities that will lower the cost.
