Default Advice needed about keeping 2 falcons in same pen please?

Hi, i have currently got a 2016 male pere/Lanner and female pere/lanner that are brother and sister and I was wondering if it would be possible to keep them in the same pen for the moult? I have kept them separate since I started flying them in September, I only have two decent sized pens but I have a male pere/saker as well, usually during the winter there's no issues as I'm flying them regularly and keep the falcons blocked, but I'd rather have them free lofted for the moult but il be a pen short if I free loft all of them and I'm a bit concerned about just turning them (the pere/Lanner's) into the same pen. If their weights are up to fat weight will they be ok together or will I just have to keep them apart?
Thanks in advance.
Jason

I have done it before and as long as there fat it should not be a problem. With any two falcons etc together there is some risk so keep an eye on them see what they do. I did worry but didn't have any problem it's normally over food they fight. Good luck.

Thanks, il give them a try. As regards them breeding, I was under the impression that hybrid falcons couldn't breed, so is this untrue then?

i'm no falconer breeder and there is diminished virility in certain species/sexes
i'm sure a breeder will come aboard to clarify ,but nature usually finds a way ! usually when least expected
Lots of hybrids do breed with no problems

Il certainly keep a close eye on them, thanks very much for the information. I put them together this morning after their bath and they seem to ok together, so fingers crossed that there won't be any issues.
Thanks again,
Jason

I've been told it's the female in pere/ lanners that's infertile.
