Now, I'm assuming you mean cross colors, correct? Because aren't melanistics just melanistic phased ringnecks? Same with snow's and all the other colors out there? I could be wrong, but that was my understanding, that they're all the same breed, just different colors. Ages might help, but to me, that doesn't look dark enough to be a melanistic. I believe they're supposed to have a full black back as well, but I'm no expert. Hope someone else who's better with pheasant genetics can help
