BREED DETAILS- Red Golden Pheasant (Chrysolophus pictus )
The Golden Pheasant or Red Golden Pheasant is one of the best known and easiest pheasants to keep and breed in backyard aviaries. Some can become quite confiding, taking treats right from their caretaker's hand. 
DIET: Often Golden Pheasants are fed on mixed grains and greens. Many people also offer diets formulated for game birds as a nutritional basis. These pheasants are extremely compatible with other types of birds. They have been raised alongside waterfowl, doves, pigeons and even peafowl. It is, however, not recommended to keep them in the same aviary with other species of pheasants. The hen incubates the eggs for 22 to 23 days. It has been noted that not all Golden hens have good mothering skills and they may be careless with their eggs or chicks. It is encouraged to provide as much natural surroundings as possible to encourage the hens to incubate. To avoid any problems, it is best to pair an inexperienced pheasant with one who has bred in the past to increase a successful hatch and good parenting. The chicks are generally easy to raise and are good eaters. In fact, they are often used as role models to teach the chicks of other species to eat on their own. Golden chicks are easy to sex when very young. The color of the female's iris is a dark brown, while the male's is much lighter.
In principle, pheasants are looked after in the same way as chickens. First you need to build and equip a poultry house. It should consist of two territories:
  • Closed room.
  • Outdoor walking area.
  • In a closed house, perches should be established. They are made of wood. The floors are covered with straw or grass, and also sprinkled with sand. Pheasants can walk outside in spring and summer. Almost all breeds are very cold-tolerant, so do not expose birds to the risk of illness. If you have pheasants for breeding, then settle them with families. Each should have one male and three or four females..Birds incubate eggs for up to 40 days. On day 20, it is better to take the eggs and place them in an incubator. The temperature in it should be approximately + 38 ° C, and the humidity should not exceed 80%. If you do not have an incubator, you can donate the eggs to chickens or ducks to incubate. If you keep pheasants solely for decoration, then one male and a female will be enough.
