Does a quail or a pheasant live longer?

    Estimates vary, but it seems that in the wild, pheasants have the slightly shorter lifespan, often not making it past their first year. Males may only live through one mating season, while a female makes it an average of twenty months. If they are lucky or kept in captivity, a pheasant can live up to eight years. There are several lifespan estimates for different species of quails, most of them in the two to five year range. However, bobwhite quails also are commonly killed before they live a full year.

    The short answer is, they both have very short lifespans in the wild, though the pheasant’s is more known for being very short. In captivity, the pheasant might live a little longer.
