Pheasants are birds that are featured in the Freaky Forester random event. The player may kill any pheasant to gain the reward from the event and to be teleported back to the spot that they were previously at.
Pheasants have 5 hitpoints and the first blow to them always hits for 5 damage, thereby killing the bird. Players receive no experience for killing the pheasant, making the random event safe for Skillers. The drop is a raw pheasant which is to be given to the Freaky Forester to complete the event.

At least one of the following two things now happen: Freaky Forester will now accept any pheasant for a reward, while still requesting a specific pheasant, and/or all pheasants always drop on death the Freaky Forester's requested variant of raw pheasant.
Formerly, upon failure to deliver the correct raw pheasant not only would no reward be given, but the player would be teleported off to a random spot on the map rather than returned back to their origin.

The pheasants can be attacked even if the player has their attack options hidden.

When it was made as an anti-bot event, the idea was that bots couldn't just keep giving him pheasants until they stumbled upon the correct one and claimed the reward. So he takes what he's given, but the reward is dependent on it being the correct one."
