Juvenile Pheasant crossed with bantam hen?

Is this a Pheasant crossed with a bantam hen? Big question with bird flu about. This was observed in July 2006 when bird flu was a big issue. It was among bantam chicks but its plumage resembled that of a pheasant and it displayed feral behaviour of disappearing off over the fence into the undergrowth when humans approach. It displays features of its siblings (seen around it and in a skirmish in one photo) and pheasant head, beak and plumage patterns. Is it possible? The owner believed it was a cross... This is something i have been waiting to get under the nose of somebody who might know? If there is anyone out there who has an opinion?
