Sera from 24 vertebrate species and 3 antisera specific for human type A, B and Rh-D cells, respectively, were tested for their ability to agglutinate red blood cells of ring-necked pheasants (Phasianus sp.). Normal sera were grouped on the basis of agglutination titer, and the majority were included in the moderate and strong groups. Differential agglutination was limited, however. Substantial variation in ability to agglutinate pheasant cells occurred among sera of individuals of the same species. The usefulness of natural sera tested appears limited in the investigation of blood group factors of ring-necked pheasants.
