I have been feeding pheasant visitors and one in particular is become quite tame. I have been trying to give her food that she can pick up and so far I have been successful but the beak is growing and she is finding it more of a struggle to pick up seeds. She can manage homemade brown water soaked bread but I know that is not ideal a.a. I tried her on peanuts today but cannot manage them unless I halve them and then it’s painful to watch.
i have trimmed chickens with crossed beaks before and was wondering if I could do the same for this pheasant because I fear her beak will get worse as it grows.
