    how much room do Reds and Amherst's need?
    I have an aviary that is 12 x 20, so can i divide that into three different ones
    and put a pair in each? so it would be roughly 7 x 12 for each one....
    Thanks!

    That size is good.Each state has requirement pen sizes for ringnecks,as they claim they are a native species(which they are not).Remember to put a barrier in between all the pens at least 3' high so the males will not be at each other all day.If no barrier is in place,it also disturbs their breeding.
    In N.H.,Tony.
