    Can any of the pheasant species be housed together? I now golden pheasants and peacocks get along fine, but what about reeves and silvers or ringnecks and silvers?

    Very simple none! You face the problems of cross-breeding, aggression among males ( and sometimes females) And don't always count on your pea fowl being able to coexist with smaller birds like goldens. That can also lead to dead birds. I know some who say it's ok, and I know some who used to say it was ok until their pea cock tore their pheasants apart! Space requirements are also different for different species of pheasants. Your are always better off by housing different species in their own aviaries.
