The reason that pheasants are so cheap goes back a bit.
The French use to gobble our surplus birds but since the fall of the iron curtain they have them from there.

KG is right, the shoots literally can't give them away. Which is great for us even if they don't taste quite as nice as the one you've poached yourself !
