    I have a pair of IB's now in a enclosure that has a 6 x 24 ft run with a "house" area that is 6 x 7. Anyone jave experience keeping other birds in with their Peas? Bantam ducks, pheasants, etc. Does it work? Thanks!

    I have either red golden, amherst, or ringnecks in my pea pens.and have never had any issues. Never tried ducks. I have a friend that has.different pheasant species with his as well. Only.one had issues.with were silver pheanats during breeding season.

    Quote:What size fencing do you use for your pens? I have chain link dog kennel panels now. Will pheasants fit through that?

    My pens are 2x4 welded wire. I think chain link would be fine.
