    Anyone know if it is okay to raise ring neck pheasant chicks with poultry chicks of the same age. I have 5 little pheasant chicks and 4 chicks (2 Silver Lace Wyandotte and 2 EEs). They will be separated when they get older, but they are just a few days old right now. I'm new to the site and any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Check the pheasant board - but I'm thinking NO. Chickens carry a lot of diseases and parasites that they are perfectly okay with but game birds will get sick and die.

    Also, the feed requirements are much different.

    Thanks I will keep them separated then. I think the little pheasant chicks may be a little to fiesty anyway.
