    I bought my Pheasants at 1 week old and they are about 5 months old now. I still cant tell what i have for sure--male or female. One has just a little of red around its eye. And another one has white and black around its eye. They are getting some pretty colors on them. But i still cant figure it out for sure. Any suggestions? [​IMG]

    Its hard to say without pictures but I would say males since they are getting color, females usually stay fairly cryptic.

    They should be easy to tell by this age, mine were. Only the males will get bright coloring on their feathers. My boys are 5 1/2 months in my pics on my website. Also it would help if you can post some pics to help us to help you.
