    Hi--Do you need to keep them enclosed? I know ringnecks will leave and not come back, but I wasn't sure how these pheasants would do on a fenced in one acre area. I keep peafowl and guineas like this, and they don't go far at all.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Yes they need a covered pen or they will fly.You need to seperate each breed to as they will cross breed.We don't need any more cross breeds in the gene pool.
    In N.H.,Tony.

    Thank You. This helps a lot. I definitely won't let them cross breed.
