Francolin or Pheasant?

Would like to know what sort of bird this is. I'm thinking some kind of escaped Francolin?
Not my photos. Taken in Salem, OR.

Pheasant. Back and tail feathers consistent with ring-necked pheasant. Not sure why it looks so sickly though.

A ratty juvenile, then? Maybe molting into adult plumage.
