A study was conducted to know the relation between temperature, growth and feed consumption rate in Korean Ring-Necked Pheasants. Three cages of same size (7.25 x 4.15 m ‘’30 m2 area, per bird space 10 m2”), were selected for a pair of pheasants in each cage. Six chicks of 15 days old were selected (3 males and 3 females) for three cages i.e. C1, C2 and C3 having 1 male chick and 1 female chick in each cage. It was observed that feed consumption rate was also decreased, decline in feed consumption rate 6.62, 8.23 and 8.74 respectively of three groups 1, 2 and 3. Maximum feed conversion rate was recorded during 1st week of study and minimum during last week of study in all groups. In the present study week wise feed conversion ratio (FCR) was statistically significantly different (p<0.01) whereas no difference (p>0.01) was observed among the three groups.
