Both pair are about the same at hatching.Broodiness depends on the bird,some will set and some won't you'll just have to see if they will set or not.Most will if they are comfortable with their surroundings and it is quiet around their pen.

Pheasants can catch diseases from chickens that are fatal to them but don't hurt the chickens. Male pheasants also can go on hormone induced rampages and try to attack the chickens through the wire. As for setting, goldens and silvers can be great parents but if you just have a pair of each and the female starts sitting you might have to remove the male so he doesn't hurt her or kill the chicks.
