Jumbo Ringneck Pheasant
The largest pheasant breed offered is the Jumbo Ringneck Pheasant. This breed is primarily Mongolian blood and is a challenging bird for dogs to get into flight as it tends to be a ground runner. The cock typically weighs between 3.5-4 lbs. and hens 2.5-3 lbs. at maturity. This bird is often used by clubs and growers for meat production. It’s recommended that you get your orders in early to ensure you’ll be able to secure your desired hatch dates for Jumbo Ringneck.
