    Safe For Who?

    1st Off 200 Ft Isnt Much For Most Gamebirds In The Partridge And Pheasant Family, Then To Mix Up Speces Like Noah's Arc? I Wouldnt Bet On It Being A Peaceful Plan. Also For What Its Worth I Know A Lot Of Folks Have Good Luck With Chukar--- In Cooler Climates, But Sacramento Is A Very Warm/ Hot Climate And From My Experiences With Chuker Here In Florida, Another Very Warm/ Hot Climate Is That Heat Makes Them Mean.. As In 2 Legged Feathered Assassin Mean. You Can Try It But I Would Have A Backup Pen Ready At A Moments Notice--- Keep In Mind Any Of The Larger Gamebirds Can Inflict Severe If Not Fatal Damage To A Penmate In A Heartbeat. While The Parakeets Can Fly, It Wont Look Good For The Buttons...

    I'd be willing to say that JJ is right on the money with his answer.
