    Hi, I have the chance to raise some day old Ring Necks, i was wondering if I could keep two of them and and put them in with my Peafowl, The Flight pen is 16x20x9 with a attached 8x10x8 Coop.

    I know there is no guarantee But has anyone done it?

    I have put ringnecks in my peafowl pen before without any trouble. No guarantee, but it worked for me.

    Age is the biggest factor, then room and cover. with pheasant's you need to brood them together then they are fine. in a flight pen when ever you introduce a new bird or birds a new pecking order is established. pheasants are very aggressive. time of year and there age is another factor, pheasants in a fly pen at 12 weeks go Thur a period of above normal aggression, again during the month of November. If the peafowl out number the pheasants I would say you would have a better chance. good luck. J.R.C. Utah.
