from what I've read only ringneck pheasant cocks produce offspring with domestic chicken hens

There used to be a guy up the road from me that had male pheasants and banty hens together to get crosses. They sell for more than Regular Ringnecks but he doesn't breed them anymore. I actually caught one that got out and my dog killed it. They were calmer than Pheasants but not as calm as Chickens.

Very interesting, does anyone know if common ring pecks can cross with melanistic pheasants? Because I think I used to have one, if it is, we know the ringneck was the mum because we were after ring necks and one of the eggs had a tiny black thing inside it. It was born with dislocated hips but we tIDE a bandaid around his legs and now he's the fastest pheasant on two legs! He's also my personal favourite, other than Hermes, who pipped his egg but did not hatch, so we had to cut him out of his egg:jumpy 🐣🐥

I've got fertile eggs about 3 days in froma  cinnamon ringneck hen over a Belgian Danver rooster. They grew up together and there are no other birds in their pen.

I have 4 small cages with different male pheasants and different bantam hens to force them to breed, will let you know how they go.

So love the backyard full of hybrids
