    Quote:red,
    yellow and all other will be mutations of the golden

    the crosses to most all reds by mutations yeild reds as F1's they will be split to the mutation color, but that's it.
    Same usually goes for mutation to mutaion crosses, you usually get red.

    Just like in peafowl, if you cross a bronze peacock to a opal peahen, you will just get blue peacocks.
    if you cross a blue peacock to a bronze, you just get blues. They will be split to the colors you crossed them to, meaning they will carry 1 copy of that colros genes, but the must have two copies for the color to be visable. In split cases, the bird is always it's natural occuring color, in the gold pheasants case, that is red....
