Thread: Price for a brace of pheasants?

  1. #1

    Price for a brace of pheasants?

    Just curious but how much in your area do you get for a brace of pheasants from the dealers? I just had a conversation with a local butcher that I couldn't believe and will elaborate if I get a response or two in case I am out of touch with prices!!

    It starts off at 1, but by the time they have rejected any damaged/heavily shot birds you are looking at an average of 70p a brace.

    That's what I thought! The butcher has had to drive a round trip of approx 100 miles to get them at a price of 4 a brace as there aren't many local and what she can get has to pay 6.50 for from the game dealer. Is this normal!!??

    Probably , the game dealers pay next to nowt mate I'm assuming the butcher is buying them oven ready from the game dealer ?

    Not sure I'll ask as I'm waiting for a call back about venison and she wants to know if I can source pheasants, rabbits and pigeons too! I feel a sideline coming on!!

    There is a Harrods type rip-off store in Paris in 2005 selling a brace of UK sourced pheasants for €100!

    Buying at 6.50 a brace they would have to go out the door at nigh on a tenner after overheads and to make any profit I'd imagine!! Crazy prices especially in a rural area!

    After the rejected birds and the give always most keepers I know work on around 70p a brace, spoke to an under keeper last week in Norfolk they get 50p a brace after all deductions.

    When I was working in London I used to visit Borough Market frequently and they had a brace for 12 not dressed!!
