    Has anyone tried this? I only have one ornamental hen and was wondering if I can put her in with my ringneck hens. Right now she is in with 2 seramas, but thought it might be better if she was with other pheasants. She is a Yellow golden. Thanks

    Yes, you can put her in with ringnecks and possibly she will lay fertile eggs. I had extra red golden hens and lady amhearst hens last year and put them into my ringneck pens. As an experiment I incubated their eggs and got some really interesting birds! Be careful with the crosses though. It is important to keep the different species pure. I will not breed the birds I have hatched. I just keep them to exhibit.
