Native to north and central China, these long-tailed birds are often found in private collections. The males are very aggressive and should always be kept with several females in a pen with lots of cover. They should never be kept in mixed aviaries.
The hens will produce 2 or more clutches per season of 8 to 14 eggs. The olive-brown or cream-colored eggs hatch in 24 days.
