If I brood both pheasant and partridge togethor do I need to worry about the pheasants pecking the partridge?

Never done it myself, but I'm quite sure it's a no-no. Don't mix the two. There are a lot of things besides just pecking issues to worry about. Space, Diet, Disease, etc. I'm sure it's possible, but it's prefered to keep them seperate.

I would have to agree with wernvalley. keeping species seperate is always a good policy. Everything from space to nutritional requriments are going to be different. if you want the best quality bird, I woul keep them seperate.

You can raise both together if they are started as day old chicks. We started 150 chuckar with 700 pheasants last year. Use 28% gamebird starter with amprolium for food and red heat lights. Keep the birds stirred up the first few days as it will help keep all the chicks up and feeding. The smaller chuckars will learn to adapt to the pheasants. Block all sunlight. When you peep the pheasants at 5 weeks you don't have to peep the chuckars. Seperate the birds at 6 weeks or leave them together, it doesn't matter. If you put the chuckars in dirt pens watch closely for signs of worms, medicate immediately for a week if symptoms occur.

Just found this site. I plan on raising thousands of chicks this year. This site will come in handy when I have questions.
