I have never had a pheasant, but I am in love with the grey peacock pheasants and saw a male for sale. would it be cruel to have just one by itself? I am thinking yes it would... could one live with chickens? or could I pair it with lets say a silkie as a friend? Are they spazzy like quail are? is there anyway I could keep this male and wait until I found it a female or should I just wait until I can find a pair? Can they live in one of my coops (the small trio coops I was selling? ) or would a real aviary be best? how long do they live and are they prone to diseases? Oh and if I was gonna get a female pheasaant can I get a different breed, maybe make some sort of cool mix with the gray peacock and something else, if so what would you recomend?
