The Yellow Golden Pheasant occurs only in captivity. The Yellow Golden Pheasant is a color mutation of the Red Golden Pheasant, and has yellow where the Red Golden has red. It has a pale brown tail with darker tan spots, and brown, rather than blue on its wings.
The Yellow Golden was developed in Italy in the mid-1950s, by a man named Alessandro Ghigi. Mr. Ghigi was given a mutant yellow male as a gift and he began to work toward getting Yellow Goldens to breed true. Selective breeding was used to produce birds that will breed true.
The first Yellow Goldens to come to the United States arrived in the 1960s. For a while, they were rare and expensive birds, but they are now much more common and can be found in zoos and aviaries across the country.
******Yellow Goldens need lots of shade because the sun will cause the brilliant yellow plumage of the males to fade.******
