    I was wondering if it would be ok if I housed pheasants and chickens together temporarily. I have 3 young pullets in a small coop and I have 4 young pheasants that are outgrowing their cage. I don't have a flight pen yet for the pheasants so I was wondering if they would be ok together. Apart from different food would their be any reason not to?

    Temporary might be ok. But I would make the time together as short as possible.

    Thank You. I will try to build them a new area as soon as possible I just didn't want them to get cramped and start fighting.

    mine have been together for over a year..no problems,,tho the chickens are silkies,so they cannot roost with the pheasants.

    What kind of Pheasants?
    I gave my friend 4 Ringnecks that he put in with his chickens and they got pecked. I've also read that blackhead could be a danger to ringencks. I think yours would be fine temporarily.
