    Hi
    I have a suposed male pheasant but it haves 14 weeks and don't change it's feathers. Is agressive and "protect" the pen when a new bird goes on and because of this I thought that is a male. Also I saw it fighting with it0s brother.
    Tell me how much time need to change it's feathers. I want to see that green head and pearling feathers.
    Thanks
