    We have a coop that is 7 ft square with an attached 6 x 24ft run with a pair of Peafowl and a pair of Red goldens. Would another breed of pheasant be ok with them? I know of a breeder that has a bunch, ie. Amherst, Impeyan..., and wanted some advice before I called him. Thanks for your help!

    During the breeding season the males will fight and you will probably lose one due to the other killing it. I believe you can keep all males together if there are no hens around.

    Ok, I guess I will keep what I have and not add anymore. Thanks for your help. Fighting is definitely not what I want to happen.

    When I first got my Lady Amhersts, I had two males and a female, and I had to split the males due to fighting. I have three Golden males and they get along fine, but no ladies in the pen.

    Quote:I called my "breeder" friend today and he recommeded Impeyans. A bit too pricey for me right now so I'll just have to leavww them as they are. Better safe than sorry. If a get a better aviary that would be escape-proof, with a enclosed breezeway, to ensure no escape of big $ birds, then I will consider it. I have heard of all male pens being fine as long as no hens are in sight. Thank you!
