Biology

Despite its relatively wide distribution, little is known about the biology of this colourful pheasant in the wild (2). The diet in the wild is known to include leaves, seeds, figs and insects, but may be far more diverse. The breeding season has not been accurately determined, but eggs have been collected in April, and recently hatched chicks have been collected in July on Borneo (2). Clutch size is thought to be four to eight eggs, which are incubated for 24 days in captivity (2) (4). Although males attain adult plumage in their first year, they are not fully mature until their third (4).
