Hi
I am getting a lot of pheasant eggs many different breeds only getting fertile eggs out of a couple of pairs. It seem that the male do not seem to be breed acting like they are not interested in there job. Wanted to see if any one else is have this problem or any suggestion to maybe do to make them want to breed. Thanks

I have been getting for two weeks last night I checked 19 eggs I had in there and only 4 where fertile. I just put the third batch in last night. it seems like the male are not interested in them cuz the hens are not roughed up at all. Out of the 9 breeds I have only two are fertile. thanks

They are in pens all over but where they can see each other. I put up stuff 4' high see they cant see each other. Thank

I don't know what it could be then.I figured the males were back and forth at each other and not tending to the hens.
In N.H.,Tony.

I am in the same boat but I sort of expected a low hatch given my birds are all 2013 hatch birds- out of the 8 I put in the bator- 4 were viable and went into lock down late Sunday/early Monday- so far, one has hatched....
