Pheasant reproduction and survival as related to agricultural fertilizer use



Pheasant reproduction and survival as related to agricultural fertilizer use



Journal of Wildlife Management 42(1): 40-45



Wing-clipped wild pheasants (Phasianus colchicus) were stocked in outside pens in the spring of 1972 and 1973; half of the pens were fertilized at recommended rates. Breeding hen pheasants were force-fed single capsules weekly containing 0, 100 mg, 300 mg, or 900 mg of a fertilizer mixture. Six-week-old chicks in outside pens and 3-day-old chicks in battery brooders were given fertilizer pellets mixed with a commercial ration.
