All about the Lady Amherst Pheasant
The Lady Amherst Pheasant is another popular aviary bird. The adult male is unmistakable, with his black and silver head, long grey barred tail, and red, blue, white and yellow body plumage. His tail can grow up to three feet in length and his black and white cape is raised in displays of courtship. The female is much duller in color, and looks much like the golden female. The Amhersts hens color is more russet than the golden, also the Amhersts' legs are gray blue in color while the Goldens will be more yellowish. This species is closely related to the Golden, they will interbreed, and should be kept separate.
Care and breeding of the Lady Amherst Pheasant is much the same as the Golden. They are not aggressive, and can be kept with other bird species, such as waterfowl, doves, and peafowl. They can be kept in pairs or in small groups consisting of one cock and two or three hens. Amherst are hardy, and easy to keep, and are another excellent choice for the beginner.
Male Amherst will not obtain their full color until their second year, but are often first year fertile. Nests are laid under some sort of natural cover. Clutches consist of 6-10 eggs they are incubated for about 24 days. Amherst chics are not difficult to raise.
