    I got my first egg today(sat)and it is from my grey peacock pheasants.Yes the same pair that has been outside all winter here in N.H.There pen is polyed all around so no dratfs get in.
    The cockatiels are breeding already and they too are outside all winter.Diamond doves have 3 nest with 2 eggs each in them.I hate to say it,but I think winter is over.
    In N.H.,Tony.

    Hopefully my pheasants crank up the end of this month. Thats sweet on the egg Tony.Hope its fertile. [​IMG] Mine seem to lay a good month after everyone else on here has produced. And my other bird buddies here lay late like mine.

    I have 12 Red Golden eggs already, no Ring-neck eggs yet [​IMG] , and 2 Yellow Golden eggs. I kept the hen I purchased at a local flea market this past summer, but none of those males. I culled them all as I couldn't be sure of anything with them. The hen I kept as company for one of my boys. Congrats getting eggs this early Tony, especially being so far north.
