    Well folks
    I have a local man new to the area hatching some ringnecks on the halfs for me.

    He just called and said they are hatching but too slow. Day 26.
    And they have some sort of white stuff on them. ( Don't know) Anyway, He is saying that since my pheasants are in a closed area by the chickens they can get sick. And he say's thats what is happening.

    I have read some say to keep them separte. The chickens can not get in with the chickens.

    So if any of you have heard about this sicknessd I would like to know.
    Or is he possibility trying to say they all died. For him to keep.

    What do you think?[​IMG]

    They can get sick if they are eating the chickens droppings,but not from being in a pen close to them unless the chickens have a sickness that can spread.I personally would move them apart.As far a the white stuff,I have never had anything like that.
    In N.H.,Tony.
