    Pheasants unlike chickens, only lay eggs during the breeding season. Right now, the breeding season is over.

    In order for the hens to feel comfortable with their surroundings, they should be put in a pen with the male at least 2 months prior to the begining on the courtship/display part of the breeding season. Numberous nesting sites should be available to the hens. Although mine tend to lay anywhere in the pen, i still furnish nest sites throughout the pen. They should also have "safe" places to get away from an overly aggressive male. Distrurbing or moving the birds to a new or different pen will upset the birds and may cause them not to breed. I've also had hens that didn't lay until their 2nd season.
