I keep both, but not together.
There was some topic before, but not sure here or some
other forum .
Some one was keeping Lady Amhersts with the ducks in the same pen and apparently he found male LA dead(drowned) in the pond.
Do you have pond in your pen??
Otherwise i believe it shouldn't be a problem.
Cheers

I think it was mentioned in a Bemba post about a large enclosure, i'll have a look when I have some spare time.
The main problem is the pheasants drowning in the enclosure pond, so a shallow pond would be best.
Other than that they should get on ok.

Yes, I believe so.
Give it a try and let us know.
My personal opinion is if you have space keep them separately,
If not they should get along together.
