It's real simple to sex Golden pheasants. The males will have a wattle or a 'tear drop' under its eyes. Females will not. The Ruff pheasants, Goldens and Lady Amherst, can be sexed from day one if you know what to look for and have good eye sight.
I'm at work right now, but I'll post pics when I get home. How old are your birds?

Here's some pics of 1day old male and female Golden pheasant chicks. Also a 4 month old male Golden pheasant. Males will have a bare spot of skin below the eyes that will become the wattles. Females will lack this feature.
