Thread: pheasant with 3 beaks.

  1. #1

    pheasant with 3 beaks.

    During a pheasant shoot at Corwin in Wales at the back end of the season this year, the gun next to me shot a cock pheasant that had 2 upper beaks and a normal lower beak! I have seen some strange things this year. How unusual is this in birds in general.

    its a result of the birds being bitted,
    if not removed the beak splits,

    I have seen pheasants with a twisted beaks because of the peck rings, but never like this .

    we get them from the adjoining shoot,
    some still have the bit in, usually the very thin ones,

    This was a fat little flutter, probably due to the bit coming out.

    One from our shoot the season before last, only one we've ever come across.

    Life should be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving skidding in sideways, Merlot in one hand, Cigar in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO what a ride!

    With the amount of pheasants shot every year you would think it would be more common if it was caused only by the peck rings being left in place! or is it just ignored as an oddity and quite common.

    It is caused by going to wood with the bitt still in , its not a very comon fault as the bitts are removed when the birds are loaded into grates to be taken to wood , but when your dealing with 1000s of birds the odd one gets through
