    I am considering getting a red golden pheasant and I have some questions.

    Can a male be kept alone with out any other pheasants (if not how many is the minimum)?

    what would minimum cage size be for a single (or multiple) pheasants be?

    Also, would it get to hot for them hear in Upland, CA (it can get up to mid 90s hear in Summer).

    If you plan to keep a mixed species male only pen I would research the species you think you might want. In my experience silvers, swinhoes, reeves, tragopans, and ringnecks seem to be the scrappiest with other pheasants and goldens are pretty meek. So if you plan on mixing males try to keep the more peaceful ones and keep an eye out for territory issues such as food guarding.
