    i just set 12 pheasant eggs. Are they the same as chicken's? Humidity? How many days in the Bator? I have a styrofoam bator and does anyone know of an easier way to add water? On our last batch of bantams we lifted the lid every 3 days or so to add. We only ended up with one out of 8 hatching.....? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Last year I set 7 Ringneck Pheasants with my chicken eggs. All Seven piped, but only 2 hatched. I treated them like chicken eggs.

    Yes the same method as chickens,but golden pheasant eggs take 24-25 days to hatch.You could always run a tube down to the water trough and shoot water through the tube with a syrindge.
