MacFarlane Pheasants' Birds

Manchurian Cross Ringneck

The Manchurian Cross Ringneck is the offspring of a male Pure Manchurian and a female Chinese Ringneck. The Pure Manchurians were imported as eggs directly from the fields of China.

Melanistic Mutant 

This melanistic mutant is a pure breed. These large, beautiful pheasants feature an iridescent, greenish-black plumage. A favorite variety for release, they display a remarkable ability to survive and reproduce in the wild. 



The Chukar is a small flighty bird. Known for their flying ability and their zebra like stripes, they are a favorite addition to gamebird hunts. These birds hold well in cover and get up and go when flushed. These birds thrive in dry arid conditions; however, recently they have become a very popular additive to hunts looking to add speed to their hunts. 

Chinese Ringneck Hen

The hen pictured here is from our Manchurian Cross breed. These birds are similar in size and color to the Chinese Ringneck hens and are excellent flight birds. These birds have been known to roost in trees.  


Kansas Ringneck

What we call Kansas birds were bred and developed by the late Bernie Janssen, a longtime gamebird farmer from Kansas. Bernie bred his birds to have blue backs. The Kansas birds are a small pheasant - the cox weigh 2.25 - 2.4 lbs. and the hens weigh 1.4 - 1.7 lbs.  at maturity. The birds have a very erect posture. 

Chinese Ringneck

The Chinese Ringneck is the most popular of breeds. This pheasant is used primarily for stocking and hunting. These hardy birds adapt readily to the wild and are prized by sportsmen for their excellent flying ability and brilliant colors.  

Extra Large Ringneck

The largest pheasant breed offered by MacFarlane Pheasants is the Extra Large Ringneck. This breed is primarily Mongolian blood and is a challenging bird for dogs to get into flight as it tends to be a ground runner.
