    Okay pheasant people, what color variations are these chicks? I bought several dozen ringneck eggs and was expecting just the typical wild chick color, like when I hatched them long ago when I was a kid. But I have two other colors here. One variety is mostly black and the other is almost a mahogany red. Here they are to show you guys.

    One on the left is a mutant or melanistic(both are the same),either green or black,middle I am not familiar with,but would guess a red ringneck,on right is a ringneck.
