Hi all, our one Melanistic pheasant hen went broody with a clutch of eggs about 24 days ago, I let her have 10 eggs, i marked those eggs with marker and checked everyday to make sure she didnt get any new eggs from the other hens. Yesterday we noticed a few chicks peeking out from under her. This morning i went up to the flight pen and noticed she had them off running around in the flight pen. she has 7 Live babies that hatched out of the 10. 1 chick died in the nest and two did not hatch.. Enjoy the pic's Thanks Charlie Also here is a pic of one of our Wild eastern hens who has decided to set on a late clutch of eggs. She has about six eggs layed now and i think she will lay more. This hen for the past 3 years has sat on late clutches here every year. She will lay about 10 eggs and then sit for the next 29-30 days.. Here is her sister keeping an eye on things while im getting pic's Here's the proud tom/papa to be...Benji Heres a young jake pearing into the other flight pen full of young Jenny's were in his eyes the grass is greener on the other side.
