    hello all

    I have picked up a breeding pair of golden pheasant and she has just started laying, female 1 year old and male 2 .

    1 will the female sit on her egg !, if so how long does it take
    2 if she doesn't some incubation information would be great.

    thanks in advance

    You will have to wait and see if she sets or not.I give mine 10 days and if they don't set I put them in the incubator.Incubation temp is 99.5 and humidity is different everywhere,but 50-55% seems to be the most common.
    In N.H.,Tony.

    My hen sits though no eggs hatched. I put 12 in the incubator and hatched 7. I don't know if I will do it again as no one seems to want them in my area even though I am the only state liscensed breeder in my county.
