Ringneck Chick.jpg

MacFarlane Pheasants Inc. raises nearly two million chicks each year. We produce a wide range of chicks, including Hungarian Partridges, Red Leg Partridges, Kansas Ringneck, Manchurian Redneck Cross, Melanistic Mutants, Chinese Rednecks, the Extra Large Ringneck, and our White Meat Pheasants. Many of our chicks stay on the farm and are raised to maturity by the brooder department, but many other day-old chicks are shipped to our customers. Our hatchery employees pride themselves on providing high quality chicks through meticulous care of our eggs and facility. There are consistent guidelines in place for cleanliness and efficacy at the hatchery. The policies guarantee that healthy chicks are shipped to customers on time and in good health. We sanitize the entire hatchery weekly. Culture plates from each hatcher are incubated to check for bacteria. Since we do not vaccinate our chicks, it is of utmost importance that the chicks are not exposed to bacteria or diseases before they start their lives! Read More »

MacFarlane Pheasants has been selling wholesale pheasants since 1960. We started processing pheasants weekly in 1988 as the sales and interest in serving pheasant grew. Now, we process fresh pheasants twice a week, and in a typical year, we harvest up to 250,000 pheasants for meat. We ship our products across the United States, Canada, Mexico, and occasionally overseas to Japan. Chances are, if you are eating at a restaurant and order a pheasant entrée, it will be a pheasant from our farm on your plate! Read More »
