4-H Pheasant Raising Project

Every spring the Department of Environmental Conservation offers an opportunity for 4-H’ers to receive free pheasant chicks to raise for eventual release into the wild. This excellent opportunity gives 4-H’ers the chance to learn about raising game birds and contribute to the betterment of hunting for all.

2017 Dates:

  • ORDER DEADLINE: March 15

Pick Up: Please note that prior to picking up pheasant orders, 4-Hers must complete an Agreement Form and hand it in to the Extension office.

After completion: A Project Record must be completed and returned to the Extension office.

Need help? Download the ‘Pheasant Raising Booklet’ which will help in preparing for and raising pheasants.
