    Will this mob have a use to players? Two potential uses are as an alarm/distraction (if a pheasant creates noise when fleeing) or a source of larger tail feathers, which may have its own uses (weak, pre-end elytra material or camouflaging armor). Without a use, this mob could be subject to the same treatment as polar bears.

    Great idea. To make it more useful, rather than just a decorated chicken, perhaps it's feathers can be used to create stronger arrows, arrows that go further and inflict more damage. The pheasant could also act in a similar way to a bees nest, meaning a limited number of pheasants could naturally spawn alongside the nest, and would roam in a 30x30 block area that is their territory.

    As a fun goof, pheasants will always bolden around chickens and scare any chickens entering their territory. Not only would that be funny to watch, it could be use to herd chickens. By placing nest with pheasants around you could create areas that effectively block chickens from passing through.
