    during breeding season is the only time i really noticed the ringnecks at my school the roos crowing "ROO RRIT!" is waht i think it sounds like lol! It's not as loud as a rooster but it's audiable if you're worried about neighbors im sure they will hear them but they arent annoying IMO.

    you may need permits just to own them in your state. Some states you only need a permit to release or sell them other states you even need a permit to own them.

    Im sure you shouldnt put them wiht your chickens if that's what you're asking? [​IMG] OThers who actually own ringnecks will have better info on this than i will! LOL!

    Quote:A couple of things about this set-up for pheasants, for starters it wouldn't be a good idea to house pheasants with the chickens, could lead to a host of problems. Secondly, the height is awful low for these active birds, I would go at least 6' for pheasants to avoid problems.
