Colchic pheasant is distinguished with its beauty among the birds living in Georgia, its body is decorated with different colours. It is worth saying that colchic pheasant is considered to be a predecessor of European pheasant. According to the legend “Argonauts” brought Colchic Pheasant to Europe and it was spread throughout it. The Greeks called it “Phazyanos” (Phasei bird). Colchic Peasant inhabits in the forests, riverside copse, groves. It is fed with cereals, berries, fruit, insects, worms and others. It can hardly fly, it has strong legs and in case of danger it can run fast. The bird makes its nest on the ground in a little hole with twigs and dried leaves. It lays 8-12 eggs and weighs up to 1,7-2 kilograms.
