It's a ring neck... Pheasant.
And to set the story straight I bought 36 day old chics in April to help train my dog... Mid June they rioted and 3 came out alive.
I've killed those three now. Loud little bastards they are. And territorial as you wouldn't believe...
So I planted then the other day a few miles north of my house in stead... My dog arya did good... Even brought one back from the bush without having been shot
The birds were actually cheap... Raising them however costs a decent amount and to then have them kill each other pretty much sucks
Bought then online from strombergs chickens.
Ate 1 so far and he was delish!!!
Trust me. 8 hours in a pond with leaky waders, to not fire a single shot... Is still better than work.
