    What is the going rate for a red golden pheasant hen 6 months old? A male?? We have some in the paper but I don't know if it is a good price.

    I bought my roo for $35.00 and my hens for $10.00 each. But I have seen trios around here going for as much as $85.00. I live in Florida and they are kind of hard to come by here.

    Why are the hens so much less? Thanks for your help.

    I think males go for more because they are the pretty ones that people like. The females arent that pretty when compared to the males and they dont lay that well so they are cheaper.
    I sold my older golden cocks for $20 each but thats just me. I have seen them on eggbid for $40 or so

    Another is a trio of lady amhurst and a pair of silver red golden for $200. Good price or not. This one doesn't say the age. How well do these lay?

    If you want quality Goldens ("red" golden is a captive-given name for the normal, wild form), expect to spend between $100 and $200 for birds with import lineage. I've seen barnyard Goldens sell anywhere from $5 to $50 per bird.

    tamsflock, you could try eggbid to..

    Dan, i heard the gene pool is messed up in a lot of them
    from crossbreeding of these ornamentals types

    i know Ive been to local sales here and you can see it in the colors of the birds.
    at local sales here $5.00 up to 30 depends on the birds and how bad somebody wants them..

    ornamentals i don't believe lay to many eggs. i know the Edwards i got will only lay about 15-20 eggs a year from what the breeder told me.
    these other folks on here I'm sure can say more on the egg laying, as they have more knowledge on them
