    i have two bantams with pheasant eggs under them. i also have an incubator full of chicken eggs due to hatch the same day. i was planning on sticking some chicks from the incubator under the hens as they hatch in hopes that the bantams will raise the baby pheasants and that they might learn from the babt chickens. anyone else ever let a bantam hen raise pheasants? does it work?

    The bird will take to them, as she is gonna be a momma anyways. And the babies will think she is their momma too.
