About This Food

Description

Pheasant is a medium-sized game bird. Like many birds, the male has a more colorful plumage than the female and is larger, weighing 2 1/2 to 5 pounds compared to the female's 3-pound average.

In general, the female's flesh is plumper, juicier and more tender. Farm-raised pheasants do not have the same flavor as the wild birds.

Pheasant is an excellent source of protein, selenium, vitamin B6, vitamin B12 and niacin.  

Selecting & Storing

Choose wild pheasants when possible. Keep frozen or use fresh within 3 days.
