    Hi ! We were sold this Golden Pheasant as a female. He said she's young but could tell at this point. Well, after having her for a few weeks I'm starting to see some changes. Her eyes are still brown as you can see but she's gotten more color. Is she actually a he?

    Don't know if it's the lighting but it appears to me to be a Yellow Golden hen?

    You can tell by the iris(around the eye)a hens is brown and a male is cream or yellow.
