Most feed stores will carry a gamebird chick starter or, at the very least, have the ability to obtain it. In a captive setting it is highly unlikely that you would be able to provide sufficient supply of insects.
My suggestion would be that you not get just one chick.

need to raise them first though...

thanks for the info

EDIT: weve only got one egg, was a bit of a rescue mission.
it is a matter of IF the egg is fertile, IF the egg will hatch and IF the chick survives, so... i needed the info just incase we get something!

Pheasant chicks can raise up on normal chick starter, for chickens, and switched to gamebird feed at around 10-12 weeks. To raise from an egg, you need a proper egg incubation unit, just like raising chickens from eggs, and kept around 80 degrees steady for the first two weeks after hatching - as per my neighbor who raises peacocks when I asked her just now!

Good luck with it!
