The Swinhoe's Pheasant is also regionally known as Formosan Pheasant, Mountain Chicken, Red-footed Mountain Chicken or Blue Pheasant. This pheasant was named after the British ornithologist Robert Swinhoe, who first discovered this species in 1862. 


These visually appealing pheasants are generally calm, easily tamed and are very hardy. For these reasons, their popularity has grown in recent years, and they are now well established and common in aviculture. As they are fairly uncomplicated pheasants to keep, Swinhoe's make a great choice for the beginning pheasant fancier.
