The Pennsylvania Game Commission sells day-old hen pheasant chicks and surplus eggs in lots of 100 chicks for $60 or 300 eggs for $180. Eggs and chicks must be ordered by March 31. Early requests receive top priority. Applicants who intend to sell, barter or transfer possession of the pheasant chicks/eggs for purposes other than releasing pheasants onto lands where public hunting is permitted are required to have an agency-issued Game Propagator Permit. Both eggs and chicks must be picked up at the supplying Pennsylvania Game Commission game farm. The application to purchase surplus day-old hen pheasant chicks or pheasant eggs can be downloaded in the PDF file found below.
