    is there a " quicker" way of telling the sex of ringneck pheasants earlier then waiting for their color?,, with my goldens, i had to wait till their eyes changed colors,,, is there a trick like that fer ringnecks.

    Yep nice pic, show the males wattles, show up on day old.

    1much with ringneck, you can run a ratio 1 rooster to 8 hen. Better for the hens. I do that and still get 85% hatch rate or higher.


    What color of ringnecks do you have?
