    I woke up May 1st and went to turn the eggs in the 'bator and look at what I found. [​IMG] An OEG bantam mix:

    These little guys showed up later that same day. An EE and an Marans mix:

    May 2nd. Another Marans mix:

    May 2nd. Red Golden pheasant:

    May 3rd. Two more Red Goldens and two more OEG bantam mix:

    I had two more pheasant eggs hatch late last night but haven't gotten pictures of them yet. This makes five pheasants and six chickies.[​IMG] Hopefully the rest of the hatch will be just as good. This is the first time that I have tried to hatch chicks in a 'bator. Normally I would have left the eggs to the broodies but I really wanted to hatch the pheasant eggs indoors. I didn't want to leave it all up to the the chickens.

    Thank you guys!! I have really wanted to try this for awhile now but was to "chicken" to try it.[​IMG] It was seeing everybody's babies and thought I would give it a try. I really didn't think that anything was going to happen. I am usually not really good at stuff like this.[​IMG]
