    Want to get some ringnecks. Would a 10ftx20ft pen be sufficient for 4 hens and 2 roos? Is this ratio ok?

    Good for 4 hens and 1 rooster.If you have 2 roosters they will fight until death.

    I recommend at least 4 hens in that amount of space.! male can breed up to 10 hens,and the more hens the better.
