    Can I put a few pheasants with my peafowl trio. The pen is 12X32. The pheasants are about two months old. Will the peafowl kill the pheasants ??

    Thanks for your help.

    Just be careful when you add them. Overnight is probably best, and adding them after the males have lost their tails is also probably best. Adding them in the spring when the males will get aggressive could certainly lead to death if the males think those dirty pheasants are pulling moves on their girls.

    Thanks for the replies. My male has lost his tail already. This move will open up a pen I can use for other feathered critters.
