    I know this can be done depending on the temperment of the birds. The main question I have is, egg fertility during breeding season. Those individuals that have them together do you have issues with this. I am thinking of trying it out this year but do not want to bother if i will have to seperate during breeding season. Might as well build seperate aviaries to begin with.

    I think you answered your own question. If you are just enjoying your birds they can live together as long as they have plenty of room to get away from each other. If you are trying to produce chicks then you might want to have separate pens, hatch rate is bad enough without interference from other birds.

  3. I kept ornamentals in with the peafowl for a long time. With enough space they were fine.

    I don't think Dany is going to have any issues with egg fertility with no hens in the pen...
