    Hello,

    I will be hatching pheasant eggs in the next month or two. Any advice for a successful hatch? Thank you!

    I have found pheasants harder to hatch comparing chickens and quail. When I say "harder" what I mean is the percent of hatch is usually lower with pheasants. Other than that they are hardy birds, easy to raise.

    Depend on what type of pheasant, incubation time are not all the same, Ringnecks hatch about as easy as chickens.
