Indian Ringneck x Golden Pheasant Hybrid

I was holding this new pheasant today, and and marveling at how
beautiful his plumage is. He’s orange with a lot of purple in the
feathering. He’s a hybrid, this is his genealogy. Apparently he
can breed and produce offspring, while a hybrid hen will lay
sterile eggs, which is  interesting. Lots to learn.
