Peach Golden Pheasants are a rare and special color mutation of the original, wild Red Golden Pheasant (Chrysolophus pictus). Peach Golden Pheasants are not hybrids or crosses.

Peach Golden Pheasants are highly decorative and strikingly unusual in their coloration, reminding one of a cockatoo's color scheme. Males have a lot of white set off by a light, shiny golden breast, and body and a full peachy ruff. The head is crested with shimmering yellow-gold color and the under-eye marking on the face looks like a dab of bright yellow paint. There is virtually no dark barring or striping - the peach ruff has light barring in a white-buff color, and the tail and wings are white. Male Peach Golden Pheasants seem to light up an aviary with shimmering light. Females are far less dramatic than males but look great as a group. Females can be all white or have splotching of light tan or fawn.

The Red Golden species is indigenous to the forested mountains of China. However, this Peach Golden Pheasant mutation can only be found in captivity. The Peach Golden Pheasant is found in collections and aviaries around the world.

Housing Requirements: Peach Golden Pheasants require an enclosure with plenty of floor space. If there is not enough room, they tend to rub their tails on the sides and break off feathers. Also, be sure that the enclosure is situated in the shade, as sunlight can fade their color. Peach Golden Pheasants get along fine with other types of birds.

Diet: Peach Golden Pheasants do fine when fed a commercial Game Bird Diet.

Miscellaneous Notes: When breeding Peach Golden Pheasants, do be aware that they can cross-breed and hybridize with other ruffed pheasants, which include both Red Golden or Lady Amherst Pheasants.
