    Chickens about 21 days. Turn them 1-5 times per day 1-18 then no turning after day 18. Temp for still air should be around 101-102. Not for sure about forced air I think 99.5. Humidity depends on who you ask. I am keeping mine around 40-45% days 1-18 and up to 65% starting day 18. I don't know anything about pheasants. Maybe someone else will know.
    Good luck!
