Unexpectedly, the scene before his eyes made him extremely surprised. This was the first time in his life he had seen such a strange bird.

The bird that Quach Ton Toa saw had a set of colorful feathers . When the sunlight shone on it, the feathers reflected light, making his eyes dazzled. After calming down, the man suddenly remembered the “golden phoenix” that his father often mentioned but had never seen before, so he was very happy. Quach Ton Toa immediately ran into the house to get some grain to feed the bird. The “golden phoenix” seemed to understand that he would not harm it, so it confidently rushed in to eat. Even before leaving, it turned back to look at the young man and made a strange cry.

The 7-yellow pheasant is a species of bird in the Phasianidae family. In Vietnam, people often call it “Japanese pheasant” but actually this species of pheasant comes from Western China. Small numbers of pheasants are also found in Ireland, Northern Scandinavia, the Northern and Southern Iberian Peninsula, Italy, and Southern Greece.

For a long time, the 7-colored yellow pheasant has been compared to a “phoenix” and was chosen as a pet because it has colorful plumage, with a shiny yellow patch covering from the top of the head to the base of the tail; Particularly, the neck and wings are interwoven with many characteristic compartments with black, yellow, purple feathers: while the breast and abdomen are completely covered with bright red feathers. Yellow 7 pheasants, thanks to their colorful fur, are considered the most beautiful pheasant breed compared to other pheasant breeds in Asia and are also very valuable. Asians often believe that yellow pheasants can bring luck because of their special feather color. Depending on the age, color, and shape of each bird, the price is different.
