    I have a couple of chukar mixed in with a hen ringneck pheasant. The male chukar keeps meowing and jumping on her to mate. Can they cross bred?

    thanks

    he sounds a little confused haha, if they can it would produce a mule that wouldnt reproduce. Guineas and chickens can cross, so it is possible.
