    how many eggs did she incubate? How many hatched. When I had pheasants (ringnecks) the hens wouldn't lay 2 eggs in the same place.

    She must feel comfortable with her surroundings.Make sure there are no holes where the little ones can escape.Those little buggers love to take off when ever they get the chance.Congradulations on your hatch,I'm sure you'll have many pics of chicks to show use in the near future.
    In N.H.,Tony.

    she laid nine eggs I take away in the beginning to put in the incubator pheasants doesnot go broody by themselves normally I thought but at the end she got broody.In every aviary a put a lot of rocks and it seemed it do the trick. So I gave her 4 eggs to incubate the other is starting to hatch in the incubator their already 3 out I will post somen pics next time

    thanks
