    [​IMG]I used to own a pair of golden pheasants. They were definitly not as sociable and friendly as chickens. They were gorgeous birds, but very timid. Although i have read that they can be tame enough to eat lettuce from your hand. Hatching their eggs seemed to be the same as chicken eggs. I have an r-com so i just put them in and let the bator do all the work lol. The golden pheasants eggs take around 22-23 days to hatch. If you have any other questions feel free to ask. hope that helped.

    Hi,
    Yes it did , thanks, I saw them and thought they were absolutely gorgeous birds.
    Beautiful.
    Thought I might like to try to hatch some, do you think if you hatched yourself and held everyday a couple times day they would become friendlier?

    Thank you again,
    Angela
