    Hello. Im new to bob whites and was wondering if i can keep them housed with my other birds? I have melanistic pheasants, ringneck pheasants and chukar in a treed flight in the back yard. was just wondering if i can house my bob whites with them or if there will be a picking issue?? i only have two bobs with well over a dozen other birds.. Thanks!

    Bad Mojo Waiting To Happen Here Sarge...

    While Bobs Are Mean Lil Suckers, The Size Factor Is Definately Working Against Them In The Mix You Describe.

    Yeah thats what im afraid of.. Theyre definitely a lively bunch, that i do know, but wasnt sure.. so im thinking that if i dont want to go through the hastle of a whole other flight pen for two little bob whites, i may just give them back to the person i got them from.. time will tell really.. Thanks a lot for the input [​IMG]

    Bobwhites are mean little birds, they look adorable but that's just there disgise, mine are in their pen sometimes my hen will roam around the bobwhites pen with their flock of 8 chicks and the bobwhites try to peck at them thought the wire. And sometimes when there laying eggs they will attack me when I try to gather the eggs. You have to becarefull with these birds.
    Good luck with them.
