    Hey all! I'm looking at an auction site and there is a red golden on it. It's a nice price but one of it's legs is bowed, is this a horrible thing? The bird seems to get around fine.

    I wouldn't buy it myself. The bird may have problems with breeding. Unless you like to just watch it stumble around your coop, I would wait for a good healthy bird. There is probably a good reason why the pheasant is so cheap.
