    I am thinking about buying a few golden pheasants (probably eggs and hatch them). Could anyone give me a few tips on how to raise them and about incubating pheasant eggs. I have had plenty of experience with chickens and other birds, but never with pheasants and any help you could give would be appreciated! [​IMG]

    23 days to hatch at 37.7 degrees c. humidity roughly the same as with chickens. I raise my golden pheasant chicks on a mixture of unmedicated chicke crumb and boiled egg for the extra protein needed for the first 5 weeks , then move on to just the crumb followed by growers pellets. They truly are great birds to keep and have around.

    Are very delicate when they hatch so lots of care must be taken. treat them like a mother would for the first few days. the great thing about golden pheasants is that they imprint on you when they hatch

    After my last emu egg hatches I would also like to hatch out some golden pheasant eggs.
