Filled with fantastic colour pictures and diagrams throughout, this is a comprehensive guide on how to raise pheasants and red-leg partridges. It provides an understanding of each species, choosing the breeding stock, incubating the eggs, rearing the chicks to release and then nurturing the game through to the start of the shooting season. It is a hands-on practical guide that draws on a wide-range of accepted best practice, including experiences of overseas success stories. Advice is given on rearing game in a low-cost and efficient manner, without compromising quality and ensuring the welfare of the birds is paramount. Invaluable information for amateurs and professionals alike.


Having grown up in the countryside and spending most of her time either working with the local gamekeeper or out exercising flat racers and hunters, before eventually moving to the city in order to work, Beth Williams has finally gone back to her roots. Both she and her husband bought a small estate where they established their own rough shoot. However, in the absence of any complete information on how to rear Pheasants and Partridges from scratch, Beth decided to put the information together herself in one book, benefiting from constant learning and refining of rearing techniques; and conveying the full sense of passion that they have for their work.
