    Spring is officially on for our pheasants

    Well upon closer inspection of the pen today, i found my first pheasant eggs up under a pine tree in a nice little nest..

    Of course now they are frozen, but I'm going to crack them open after they thaw a bit and try to check fertility on them..***good thing i switched them all onto to game bird layer 4 weeks ago..
