Mikado Pheasants are native to the upper altitudes of the mountainous areas of Taiwan. They are mainly dwellers of thick forest, but seem to also do well in secondary bamboo growth.
They lay 5-10 eggs in a clutch, and their eggs are almost twice the size of other pheasants in the same genus. Incubation lasts 27 days.
