    so you suppose to take them out the bator a few days before hatch and they won't get cold inside and die. I was told to leave them in until the day they hatched?

    Why do some people say that it is 16 days for pheasant to hatch but on the chart is says 22-28 days? Wow so many things are said lol and no idea which ones to use for more likely ness lol

    Some people move them from the incubator to a special hatcher for lockdown. The temperature is the same, the humidity is higher, and the incubator is not as hard to clean. Or you can leave them in the incubator.

    I don't do pheasant so I cannot help you with that one.

    awesome from what i can see my buttons that went in on the 19th should be done on May 5th right? I was told that if I put it at 100 or 100.5 that they will hatch few days early so not sure how true that is or not. Thanks for your help. I hope they all do great. and hope i get at lest 98% hatch rate but you never know lol
