    Well what do you call chicken feed?Layer pellets and cracked corn?They will eat these feeds,but they are gamebirds and should have a gamebird feed.Gamebird and turkey feed is what they should be fed.They should not be kept with chickens as they are gamebirds and are suseptible to diseases which chickens can pass to them.Why 2 with chickens when you have 6?What is your male to hen ratio?If you have 2 males and 4 hens,they will be fine together as long as there is plenty of room in their pen.
    In N.H.,Tony.

    can you keep them with Red Golden Pheasants(1 pair) and Peafowl(1 pair) in a 14' x 14' aviary? If so would be a good number to have a pair or trio?
