    I have a GQF incubator and have raised chickens over the years with somewhat sucess. I do not have the same sucess with peacocks and pheasents. I have been told that I do not need to maintain the two water tubs during incubation until the last three days but then I'm incubating both kinds of birds at the same time. Any ideas or suggestions would be helpfull and also does anyone know of a good temp/humidity gage for my type of incubator?

    Welcome to byc and the addiction. I have a home made cabinet bator. I currently have 22 ringneck out of 28 that are coming along good. I have never hatched pheasant so take this info with a grain of salt. The guy that i bought the eggs from locally told me to run the temp around the same as chickens 99.5 . He also said run the humidity at around 50% until lockdown then to about 70 and. mist the eggs a small amount at lockdown. You might wanna ask the same question in the pheasant forum below this one .
