Yellow Golden Pheasants

The Yellow Golden Pheasant is a mutation of the Golden Pheasant where the bright red coloring of the bird is replaced with stunning and vivid yellow plumage. The Golden Pheasant or Chinese Pheasant is native to dense forested and mountainous regions of China. There are also many regions of the United Kingdom where feral populations have been started and thrived as well.

The Yellow Golden Pheasant is brightly colored and an incredibly beautiful bird species. They are also surprisingly easy to raise and breed for beginning avian enthusiasts. These birds can fly if necessary to avoid predators, but they are much more apt as ground fowl and prefer running. They spend most of their day feeding on the ground on berries, seeds, grains, or invertebrates, and they will roost in trees at night.

Yellow Golden Pheasants have a brilliant golden crest and rear and have bright yellow flanks, breasts, and bellies. The "ruff" or "cape" around the head is black and orange. The tertiary plumage and plumage around the mid back is gray, where the Red Golden Pheasant's is blue. The Yellow Golden Pheasants tail is black with cinnamon colored spots and accounts for about two thirds of birds total length. The female Golden Pheasants are much duller in coloration than the males, with mostly mottle or barred brown and buff plumage. The females will lay between 8-12 eggs and incubate for 22-23 days.

**Note : These Golden Pheasants were hatched in the previous Spring season and are under one year of age. Most pheasants will not color out fully until their second year of life.**
