I've been incubating 15 Golden Pheasant eggs in my incubator and their hatch day was this past Wednesday. I ended up with only 2 chicks, 1 that I had to help today ended up dying a few hours later and the lonely chick has a problem with it's leg I think its either curled toes or splayed leg. I was expecting more to hatch than 2 I doubt any more will hatch as tomorrow would be day 26. I had a quail hatch in there too that did very good with about 20 chicks. Maybe the low hatch rate was due to the fact that these were shipped eggs through the mail, maybe? I really want to raise some golden pheasant chicks and want to try again. Do you guys recommend me to order more eggs and try again? Or will I just get a low hatch rate again whenever I order shipped eggs.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
