    Hi all,
    Any reccomendations on an incubator for pheasant eggs? Look for all the goods egg turner, automatic temp, etc. I dont really want to mess around with it often. Looking to spend $100-300. Any ideas?
    Thanks all

    Lots of people on this forum use and recommend Brinsea incubators. A simple Google search turned up several in your price range (with and without the extra equipment).

    That being said, I use a cheapo styrofoam Little Giant that I got second hand from a friend of mine. I've never hatched pheasant eggs, but I have done standard and bantam chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys in it. I see them for around $40 at TSC (I think the turner is like $20, but can't remember, I've just looked at them, don't have one).

    Are you wanting a table top bator or something like a cabinet style? You could also consider making one yourself. You'll save a bunch of money and can build it to suit your needs. Anyway, good luck picking one, there are lots of great options to choose from!
