    I was supposed to have pure ring neck pheansant from someone on eggbid. What hatched were a bunch of normal ones and 3 different. The different ones are blackish/brown. Two have white rings on their necks and white tips on their wings. The other is the same minus the neck ring. Any clue on what these will be? Are they a cross that got mixed in?

    Thanks,
    Faye

    They sound like my green melanistic babies. Basically (for males)think ringneck head color all over the body, very beautiful. Females, when mature, are a brown with darker brown stripes. It is mutation that can be bred true, and still occurs in pure ringneck-ringneck crosses.
