    Hi guys, I am making an aviary for some Mandarins and maybe someday some wood ducks. I would also like to get some amherst or golden pheasants, would it be possible to keep them in the same pen or would they fight or stress each other out? I think I know the answer but I figured I would ask anyway, Thanx in advance,

    Yes It will work fine. I do it now. One thing though if you use kiddy pools some of the younger pheasants may drown if left with mother. But have never had fights with the adults. Also on rare occasions I have left ducklings with the mom duck and if your female pheasants are about to lay or laying only the female pheasants may grab them and toss them and if not enough room or cover kill the baby ducklings
