    As long as you're aware of the time differences in hatching dates (like different pheasants can have different hatching lengths, some go for 22 days, some for 26 or 27.... you'd have to look up each one to find out) then you should be find to incubate them together. They all need approximately the same temp and humidity, just different times to stop turning them. So if you're prepared and have a way to stop turning some but not all of them, then you can probably go for it.
