    I have a chance to get my hand on a pair of ringnecks, Can I house them with my peacocks? There is plenty of space, around 800sqft.
    Also how long do ringnecks take to hatch. And can I feed them gamebird food mixes with scratch and cat food? Thats what my peacocks eat.

    Are they worth $10 each? They look a lil beat up. Here the link to the add...

    I am in Goshen! We don't travel much! What are the breeders names? I would love to buy some from them later on. Thank you so much!

    And what should I do for nesting if they breed? My peacocks have all sorts of nest boxes, would they use one of theirs? And do they go broody?

    this last breeding season i had ring necks in with my peacocks and my hen went broody, I think the key is to have a large area not packed with birds and plenty of cover.
