Still, like on the previous blog post, 1 April 2018, at the Lady Amherst’s pheasants‘ dance floor. As this photo shows, the adult male and the females danced on and off rocks, on and off the slope on the left.

    Males will they fight?
    Because I woke up and my one males eyes are swollen shut
    And hes not happy
    His head is swollen like hes been picked on.
    Could this be a Guinea hen? Male I have 5 Guineas


    • Yes, male Lady Amherst pheasants will fight each other in the mating season, especially if they are confined in a small space with no way to avoid each other.
