Abstract

We investigated exposure to infectious diseases in wild (n=33) and pen-reared (n=12) Ring-necked Pheasants (Phasianus colchicus) in the Central Valley of California, US during 2014 and 2015. Serologic tests were positive for antibodies against hemorrhagic enteritis, infectious bursal disease, and Newcastle disease viruses in both wild and pen-reared pheasants.
