    I recently purchased 21 Red Gold Pheasant eggs and i want to incubate them with bantam eggs.
    I plan on putting in the pheasant eggs then putting the bantams in later so they both hatch on the same or close to the same day.

    Will this work?

    I have never had a problem with it. I incubated peacock eggs with quail last year and they were fine. i only had one quail hatch(out of two eggs) so I had to keep him apart in the brooder. I also had ringnecks in with OEGBs without a problem. My ringnecks are VERY calm.[​IMG]
