    Hatched some eggs from my birds this year and had these guys pop up. My male is a Cinnamon Golden and the females are Reds (only ones I could find - wasn't really looking into breeding them). I had some of the chipmunk colored ones and some light golden colored. I just assumed that, that was the difference in the color variety from red to cinnamon. Now as the little ones are getting older I have a couple that are getting whiter. Are these Pied?

    Erin The Red Golden Males "metamorphisize" Their Colors Until Almost 2 Yrs Old. I Have Never Had Any Cinnamons, But The Red Males Do Change Colors Quite A Bit Before They End Up Looking Like Dad. I Am No Expert On Cinnamons But I Think Your Boy Is Doing Just That, I Can See In The Pic Where He's Molting... This May Be A Stepping Stone To Get To The Final Coloration Of Dad??? Try Sending A Pm To Tonykt, Or Spectrum Ranch, I Bet Either Of Them Can Clear It Up For You. If Not Maybe Lophura? Most Of Those Guys Have Wide Experiences With Ornimental Speces. All I Have Are The Standard Red Goldens But The Boys Do Change Alot Between Now And Maturity.


    They Are Pretty Tho! [​IMG]

    They do look like the Cinnamons I've seen in aviaries. A brief mention at the bottom of - http://www.gbwf.org/pheasants/golden.html . I've got some pics somewhere on this pc of mine that I took when I visited an aviary that had some. If I can find them, will post them.

    Wow! I know nothing about this type of bird, but just wanted to say that your picture of the "dad" just became my computer background for a while. It's beautiful!
