Melanistic Mutant Pheasants
These originated within feral stock in Europe over 100 years ago. The males are entirely dark with a glossy green and blue shade to them. The females are greenish black. They lay small brown eggs and have an incubation period of 24-25 days. A favorite variety for release, they display a remarkable ability to survive and reproduce in the wild. Prime habitat consists of 55-70 % crop fields such as corn, soybean, or small grains. The remainder of the habitat should include some wetlands, grassland, and woodland or brushy thickets.
A pure breed, these large beautiful pheasants feature an iridescent, greenish-black plumage. A favorite variety for release, they display a remarkable ability to survive and reproduce in the wild. The weight of the mature Melanistic Mutant cock is 3.5 lbs. and 2.5 lbs. for the hens.
