    Hi,
    I have a pair of Ringneck Pheasants that I enjoy keeping and I'm thinking of getting some Golden Pheasants. Are Golden Pheasants any louder than the regular Ringneck Pheasants, by any chance?

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    Pheasants are usually loud during breeding season only.They will call all throughout the year,but more often during breeding.Are you looking for red goldens?
    In N.H.,Tony.
