    I have heard many folks that will take them from their fridge..and some work.

    Trader Joe's, ...people hatch them from Trader Joes too. They are refrigerated.

    G’Day from down under Joe [​IMG] Welcome!

    I too have heard of successful hatches from refrigerated eggs. Fingers crossed you are successful.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Nice to meet you Joe. You may want to post on the "pheasant thread," just to get their input. Just put that in the search box and it should come up for you. good luck.
