    Yes that is correct. Red golden. yellow golden, and lady amherst. I am not sure what you know about their purity, but once you have hens for them they should be kept separate since they will hybridize. Were there no hens? Very nice pheasants by the way!

    You have some nice looking males, but sooner or later your going to have to separate them. Either this spring or when ever you add hens to the flock. Once they start fighting they will fight to the death and your be left with the strongest of the bunch. The Ringnecks are especially bad about fighting other males. Hope you can get some girls for them and get them separated. Good Luck with your birds. They are beautiful and really fun to raise.

    All males should get along as long as there are no hens around them.But if a wild hen passes by your pen watch out.

    I know about keeping them separate, this was a large scale re homing project, the owner passed away, so It was a last min thing, I'll be opening up some pens that i have closed down and putting them in there.

    I only have Ring Neck hens at the moment, These were a surprise to me, they were a gift from the family, they know nothing about birds and said they gave me the prettiest ones, they didn't know that males and females are different colors.
