Chrysolophus pictus luteus
The males are much more conspicuous, having a yellowish plumage on the head and longer, mask-like feathers. The wing and tail feathers have spectacular sizes and patterns that play an important role in courtship. Females, on the other hand, have a faded brown color all over their bodies.
Mating can occur from the first or second year of life, depending on the breed. A few months earlier the male starts courting until the female accepts him. It is possible to identify the sexes from the third month of life.
The female lays 12 to 15 eggs, which are incubated for about 22 to 27 days.
