Incubating ringneck pheasant eggs.

Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by Harley's girl, Apr 17, 2008.

  1. Hello,
    I just put 40 ringneck pheasant eggs in the incubator. I read that the temp should be 99.4 and to turn them 2x's a day! That all seems so low to me :eek: I am used to chickens! I turn my eggs no less than 3x's and the temp is 99.5 and 100!!! I can't seem to find out much about them (I even googled them) Do I stop turning them?! When?! If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it! [​IMG] I want to start these guys off on the right foot [​IMG] I would have just let my hens incubate them but the darn things won't go broody [​IMG] Oh well! If you can help please let me know [​IMG] Thanks!
