    This year I hatched a lot of Silver Laced WY eggs.

    In the first bator I used a motorized egg turner and at day 18 I moved the eggs to the 2nd bator for final hatching and for the roughly 24 hour drying off period.

    I am useing 3 bators. I Have one with pheasant eggs and one with a few chicken eggs and i ran out of room in the one and had to put a few pheasants in with the chickens. They hatch at diffrent times so i bought a 3rd one to use as a hatcher.

    This is my first attempt with pheasants. I have heard they are tough to hatch. So far so good. I threw out 2 that were not fertile. Im hoping for 10. I have 26 left in the bator. They should hatch on the 23rd or 24th. I will let you know what i end up with.
