Golden Pheasants, also known as Chinese Pheasants, are a species of pheasant native to China and are often raised for their striking appearance. They are prized for their bright and colorful plumage, which includes distinctive golden feathers on the male's crest, neck, and tail.

In the wild, Golden Pheasants are found in mountainous forests and other wooded areas, where they feed on a variety of foods including seeds, insects, and other small animals. They are known to be shy and elusive, and are typically seen in small groups or alone.

Golden Pheasants are also popular as ornamental birds, and are often kept in zoos, aviaries, and as pets by individuals who appreciate their beauty and unique appearance. They are relatively hardy and adaptable birds, and are relatively easy to care for with the proper facilities and attention.

When it comes to raising Golden Pheasants for food, it is not as common as other poultry breeds such as chickens and turkeys. However, they can be raised for their meat in some regions, although their small size and relative scarcity can make them more expensive compared to other poultry species.
