The Blackneck pheasant, also known as the Southern Caucasus pheasant, is a dark-feathered pheasant that can weigh up to a pound more than a Ringneck pheasant. Blackneck pheasants are also much less flighty. These pheasants can live with Ringnecks and Melanistic pheasants in captivity. Blackneck eggs and chicks are available from late March to late July
The chukar is a partridge with primarily gray feathering that is rather flighty. Weighing about 1-1.5 pounds, Chukars are nearly unaffected by extreme temperatures and relatively easy to raise. Chukar eggs and chicks are available from April until August.

The French Redleg partridge is closely related to the chukar but is an even faster flyer. They weigh about 1-1.5 pounds and gray-brown tint of feathering. They are distinguished by the speckles around their necks. French Redleg eggs and chicks are available from May through July, and are only available in limited quantities from Show-Me Pheasants.
The Ringneck pheasant is a very strong-flying bird. The strain carried by Show-Me Pheasants is bred to mature sooner, and their wild demeanor makes them ideal for re-population projects. Ringneck pheasant eggs and chicks are available from late March until late July.
These quail are related to the Bobwhites and are slightly larger. Tennessee Red quail are a dark, burgundy color and are preferred by some because of their enhanced ability to survive in the wild. Tennessee Red eggs and chicks are available from April through September.
Weighing in at about 8-10 ounces, the strain of Northern Bobwhites carried by Show-Me Pheasants is ideal for hunting purposes. They are bred selectively for flightiness and resistance to disease. Bobwhite eggs and chicks are available from April through September.
Where Quality Always Beats Quantity!
The Hungarian Partridge is comparable in size to a French Redleg partridge and has a beautiful brown feather pattern. "Huns" require more attention than a typical gamebird during their first 10 days of life, but afterwards can be treated like any other partridge. Huns are the most wild, flighty bird Show-Me Pheasants raises. Hun eggs and chicks are available from May through July, and are available in limited quantities from Show-Me Pheasants.
The Melanistic Mutant pheasant has beautiful black, purple, and green feathering. The females have black-brown feathering. These pheasants have been known to have higher re-population success rates in the wild. Melanistics can live harmoniously with Ringneck Pheasants in captivity, and can be an exciting surprise during any field or European hunt. They are also popular among hobbyists. Melanistic eggs and chicks are available from late March to lae July.
