I noticed a red gold pheasant in the background of your photo.
This is my "dream bird" that I would love to have someday when I have more room.

Can you answer a couple of questions about them? Can they be tamed to sit on your hand or shoulder? Do they have to have a large "flight" cage? Do they have calm or excitable temperments?
Can you keep several males together if there are no females in the cage? Do they have any common health problems?

Thanks for the info.

Nice pics.

A nearby bird sanctuary has Elliot's Pheasants that look very similar....is there a difference between Elliot's and Humes Bartailed?

Quote:
Humes & Elliots are both in the longtailed pheasant family. They are similar, infact Humes and Elliots have been mixed together, so it is hard to find pure birds.
