    She could be friendly, but I would worm them with Safeguard liquid goat wormer, 3 cc per gallon in water just to make sure they don't have any internal parasites.

    I have one red golden hen that is very tame.she will eat out of my hand and follow me like a pet. but they are very active like all pheasants if she just sits around like you say there is something wrong. I have alot of pheasants and all of them are speed demons when i go in the flight pen not from being scared just being themself. i agree with the other post worms will make them seem tame and layed back like that but give them a good wormer and then see how layed back thay are.
