    i have a golden pheasant hen that every year lays a clutch and broods them for the first week and then gets bored. But then the other hen in the aviary incubates the eggs is this normal clutch sharing ?????[​IMG]. Then the male comes along and incubates then eggs. Unfortunately they have never managed to hatch them. Has anyone else seen this, because i have searched and everywhere it says that this just doens't happen. Any posts would be appricated .
