Hey everyone. I have OEGB and ringneck eggs in my incubator now. When (if) they hatch, can they be kept in the same brooder?

I have kept ringnecks and silkie chicks together in a brooder for a short time although they do have different feed needs. You will want to give them the higher protein gambird starter feed. This will not hurt the chickens and the pheasants need the higher protein starter.

I have done so in the past without any problems other than the extra expense of the gamebird starter. (main reason I have never kept them together for too long).
