Hatching Pheasant eggs???

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Hi All a friend of mine wants me to incubate some Pheasants eggs for him. They would be Red and Yellow golden and Lady Amhurst. I was wondering if there is anything to do differently than when hatching chicken eggs. Thank for any help smile Have a great day!!

I have hatched Pheasant eggs. They take 24 to 28 days to hatch but everything else is the same.

Yep, do the same as chicken eggs and you will be fine. Ruffed pheasants tend to come around 22-24 days for me. I stop the turner on day 19.
You have golden and amherst eggs to incubate?? It is way off-season right now.

Thank you all for the replies. You have been very helpful. I just wanted to make sure so I am doing this right since they are such expensive birds. Also to clear up the confusion I do not have eggs right now. I will in the spring when they lay them. My friend said he would like some more since his birds are starting to get old. He said from whatever hatches he would like half of them and I could keep the other half. So now I have to decide whether or not I am going to keep them or sell them. I hate that decision lol

I will be hatching more Ringnecks out to when I get the eggs. I love to watch the Pheasants.

Cmom,

I have a few questions that I hope you could answer for me.. ( or any other member too)

 

1. I have a ringneck hen who is currently laying, however, she sporadically lays them all over the pen and not in a nest. The hen and rooster are separated. Idk if you have had pheasants do that, but i don't think it's normal. lol

2. If she doesn't start making a nest (which i don't think she will) i want to gather the eggs and incubate them. - this is where most of my ??? come from..

I attempted to hatch them last year with no success so i would like to know an experienced hatchers thought..

3. I made a Styrofoam incubator with a light and a glass window in the front. I wanted to modify it and add a fan and possibly my own turner so i don't have to keep opening the lid and letting the heat come out.. what do you think on Styrofoam incubators?

4. how do you keep the temp and humidity consistent without it fluctuating dramatically? - i don't have that high of a light wattage..

 

I think that's all of my questions! ha I hope you can answer them!

 

Oh, lastly.. if I can't get my pheasant to nest, or my incubator to do its job, what do you think about a broody hen hatching them for me????

 

Thanks a bunch!
