    I Plan to get 2 Guinea Hens, 1 Rooster and 9 Chickens of assorted kinds. I am new to this. I have a Rabbit Hutch Built for two rabbits off the front, This wouldn't be a permanent Set up but could they be kept together for a little while, I am only thinking of getting a couple Pheasant or Chukars not both. Could they eat the same foods?
    I do not plan on getting all of these birds, Just looking into option on birds that could be kept with my Chickens if I do Decide to add some. I do Plan to make an addition to my coop or build another

    The only thing that can be kept with chickens is chickens. most of the time your different species need to be kept seperate. The ONLY exception in my opinion is a guinea or two in with pheasants, guineas seem to notice predators more often than other birds and their call will scare off many of them. (the same goes for peafowl)
