Can Chickens and Parakeets live together.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have about a dozen Buff Orpingtons and 3 Parakeets ...2 males and 1 female.  I was thinking of putting the parakeets in the run during the summer to enjoy the great outdoors. The run is 8' x 24'.  I would suspect the parakeets would perch up high as is their nature but would they dive at the chickens.  I don't think the chickens would really care, they're pretty easy going.

It's not a good idea to mix two drastically different species- they can give each other illnesses.

I grow tired of asking this, so it will be for the last time. WHERE IS THE REBEL CHICKEN COOP?
