    Pheasant hens for chicks

    We have quite a few surplus pheasants on our shoot. I was just wondering what the ratio is or going rate for swapping hens for chicks/ poults with the local game farm? Thanks.

    I wouldn't bother if the hens have stopped on the plot for this long best leave em and look after them till next season ,pheasant chicks usually try every conceivable way to die anyways ! we won't catch up here as there's not much left to catch we re having another extra extra day today !

    We get 1.5 poults per hen. Was told yesterday it is illegal to catch up hens after 1st Feb. Is that correct ?
