Voliera used to be a hatchery for the baby pheasants that were raised at Montalto, to be freed in the woods when able to take care of themselves. An infra-red lamp was the incubator. The baby pheasants had a garden and a piece of woodland of their own, fenced to protect them from predators.
The original pheasants native from Tuscany, a lovely dark, luminous russet, called “tenebrosi”, were scorned as local and therefore weeded out when they appeared, in favor of the more exotic Chinese ring-necks.
