Our Pheasants Flight Pens Biosecurity From Chick to Adult

We take great care in raising pheasants from chicks to adulthood. All brooder areas are thoroughly cleaned between each generation of Oak Ridge Pheasants. Our hatchery is inspected annually by the USDA.

Our hatchery equipment is state of the art. It is maintained and upgraded to help keep our pheasants healthy and in the best care possible.
