White Pheasants Are Raised Year-Round at MacFarlane Pheasants, Inc.

We will raise 220,000 white pheasants on our farm this year which is a substantial increase in these birds, from just a few years ago.  The white pheasant is occasionally born as a mutation in the Ringneck breed. What we found out many years ago is that when white pheasants are selectively bred, they produce more white pheasants. These birds are bigger than the typical Ringneck and very tasty. We use white pheasants for 100% of the meat we sell because of their taste and size. Their average size is 2.5-3 pounds when dressed! Read More »
