This poor pheasant has ended up in quite a state after spending the last few weeks fighting off a rival that was trying to muscle in on his partner. The hen has disappeared again, hopefully sitting, but she hasn’t surfaced for food this time so I am beginning to fear the worst. The rival has also disappeared. However this boy is becoming quite tame and runs to me when I am outside, looking for food. If I am in the kitchen he has been known to jump onto the window ledge to attract my attention. He is quite a character and will take seed from my hand or try to take it from the container. He is a very gentle soul and hopefully he will return to his former glory before too long.
