The Magpie Mountain Chicken is a unique high-quality chicken breed in the history of our country.
Its breeding history can be traced back to the Spring and Autumn and Warring States period two thousand years ago. Bian Que, a famous doctor in ancient my country, selected local fine breed chicks for domestication on the 40,000 acres of Pengshan given to him by Zhaojianzi of the Jin Kingdom, and they were successfully domesticated by feeding them with Chinese herbal medicine.

3. Analysis of prospects for breeding of Queshan chicken
Since pheasants are popular in my country’s coastal areas, Hong Kong and Macau, they are exported to Japan, Singapore and other countries in large quantities every year. In addition to the large number of human hunting in recent years, wild pheasants are on the verge of extinction, resulting in a shortage of pheasants in the international and domestic markets, and shortages are in short supply. It is predicted that the market will not be saturated in the past two to three years, even if the price drops to 8 yuan per catty. , There are still profits available, and the prospects are immeasurable.
Breeding pheasants has the characteristics of small investment, mixed eating habits, strong adaptability and quick results.
Small investment: old houses, old warehouses, courtyards, orchards, slopes and other areas that can be enclosed can be used as sites for pheasant breeding.
Food habits: Pheasants eat rice bran, wheat bran, various vegetables, rice, sorghum, corn, fly maggots, etc., similar to domestic chickens.
Strong adaptability: Pheasants are resistant to high temperature and severe cold, and can grow normally from 35 degrees above zero to 45 degrees below zero, regardless of climate, region and environment.
Quick results: Generally, the chicks can be marketed in about 70 days after they are out of the shell, and reach 3 catties in 100 days. They need about 12 yuan for feed. According to the current market price of 12.5 yuan per catty, each can create a gross profit of 20 yuan. The chicken lays eggs for more than 5 months, and the annual egg production can reach 150. If 100 eggs are used, the fertilization rate and hatching rate are 85%, and the survival rate is 90%, and 60 chicks can be produced.
