    I was thinking about getting a couple of Pheasant hens, would it be okay to have them with the chickens???

    Bad idea, I wouldn't. Chickens carry to many diseases that pheasants can't tolerate.

    Not only is it the disease issue but also pheasants are rather nervous birds and do well with their own kind.

    Also chickens can be aggressive with pheasants, they would probably constantly peck them and harrass them.
