From what I remember, with ducks (depending on the breed) incubation period can range from 25 to 29 days or so. Not sure on Pheasants and Chukkars... If they're moving I'd just leave them in and hope for the best! You might also ask in the Pheasants and Chukkars section about what their incubation period is


Edited to add: Curiosity got me searching and I found this link for pheasants on another thread (http://www.gbwf.org/pheasants/pheasant_chart.html). Maybe that will help?

Pheasants take longer to hatch than chickens do. usually 24 to 29 days. I have some pheasant eggs in my incubator right now.
