    Here's a pic of my two silver pheasants. One is a year and a half old hen. The other is a six month old ?. I'm guessing it's going to be a cock because it's a little darker than the hen, but other than that, I can't quite tell, yet. Although, it does seem to be molting in a more striped tail than the hen. Maybe just a darker hen? (Notice they are used to dogs. [​IMG])

    And here's a pic of it by itself:
