    I read that red/yellow pheasants coexist well with peafowl. Is this true?

    peafowl are just big phesants.we had some ringnecks in with ours for a month or so they did fine but our peacock did like to chase the cock phesant around never hurt him.

    I've had Red Goldens in with peafowl for years and never had a problem. Here's a pic of a couple of my yearling peacocks temporarily "rooming" with a trio of RG's in one of my RG pens.
