    Hey yall!
    I built a big aviary and put golden and amherst pheasants and mandarin ducks in it. It kinda has a theme of china,
    and i wanted to get like a dozen coturnix in it but I dont know if they will be ok with pheasants?

    Yeah ,they should be fine.On the pheasants,are you putting males and females?If so,that will not work,the males will fight till death.If it's just males with no hens around,they will be fine.

    No the quail and pheasants will be fine.If you have male and female pheasants in red golden and amherst,the male pheasants will fight with each other,usually until one is dead.Plus a red golden and an amherst will cross breed.
    What exactly do you have for pheasants?Red goldens male and hen?Amherst male and hen?

    Until the day your pheasants will kill your quail.

    If your pheasants are more important to you than quail, do not worry, it is not going to happen the other way.

    As long as you have plenty of room,you can house in pairs,pheasants,quial,partridge and peafowl in 1 pen with no problems.Just don't overcrowd and you will be okay.But keep an eye just in case.
