    My neighbor was plowing his field yesterday and unfortunately killed a pheasant. She didn't want to abandon her nest. He felt so bad, he ran all the eggs over to my house because I've had success this spring with incubating chicken eggs. So I've read that the humidity and temp are the same for pheasant eggs, but do I need to turn these eggs an odd number of times per day? Help please. I just put them in the bator this morning. Thanks!

    I'm curious as well. My grandpa is sending me some ring-neck eggs in about a week, and I need to know as well.

    You would incubate them just like you do for chicken eggs (same temp/humidity/turning). Hatch day is about day 24, so stop turning on day 21.

    This is great to know. I have pheasant eggs coming and it's nice to know that it won't be too complicated.

    With gamebird eggs you turn them once like this \\ and then again like this / can use an egg carton and just tilt them like that three times a day will be enough.

    That will work great for me because that is how my turner is set up.
