    what is the ratio for Male to female with golden pheasants. Cause I’d like to have 2 of each.

    Thanks in advance

    For outdoor mating, I think most breeds of pheasant are 10-12:1 ratio.
    Goldens may be lower at about 6:1.

    Thanks for the reply, I’m not too bothered about breeding, just for the looks as pets

    Too few hens and you may have overbreeding which affects their looks.
    Too many hens and it is a fertility issue.
