  1. Hartley Boss feeds one of his Cabot’s tragopans

  2. There are 5 species ofTragopans. Tragopans are natives of the forested foothills of the Himalyan mountains.

  3. Temminck’s Tragopan, the blue bib expands when the male dispays.

  4. Himalayan Monal, the National Bird of Nepal

  5. Himalayan Monals dig with their powerful beaks

  6. Male Red Golden Pheasant, Golden and Lady Amherst Pheasants are called Ruffed Pheasants. They are easy to keep in captivity and are a good pheasant to start with should you want to try Ornamental Pheasants. They are native to central China. Males do not get their adult (colorful) plumage until their second year.

  7. Ijama’s Copper Pheasant Copper Pheasants are native to the Islands of Japan and are currently considered endangered in their native habitat. They usually do well in captivity.

  8. Hartley Boss uses broody hens to hatch his pheasants, this is a common technique used by fanciers. He uses silky x cochins and says they will stay broody all summer. These cages have nests in the back and each cage may have a broody hen with a clutch. He removes the chicks at hatch and replaces them with a new clutch. Chicks are brooded in a building secure from racoons. Notice the bucket on top of the cages, this is kept full and provides the water that runs through the line on the front of the cages
