    I have some pheasent eggs in the incubator and I was wondering about how long it takes for them to hatch. I have heard anywhere from 23-28 days. What is the average time?

    Thanks that does help. I am not sure if these will hatch or not. I am so hoping so. I got them from a friend and she had some in her bator with some chicken eggs. Most of her chicken eggs hatched but none of her pheasents hatched. I know that when mine were in the bator at a week and a half that there was 2 or 3 that I could see moving so I know they were ok then. I just hope I get some. Cross your fingers for me.

    Good luck,
    What day are you at today??? I had movement (of the eggs) about 24 hours before hatching...very subtle, you had to be sitting and staring (which I was). Right before they hatched I heard peeping.

    Well it is day 24 and there is no sign of an of the eggs hatching. I am so worried that none will hatch. I keep looking and there is nothing. No movement no sound nothing. Boy I sure hope I am wrong and at least on hatches.

    Pheasant eggs take from 22-24 days. BUT - not all Pheasants are the same, it depends on the breed (some take longer) you may want to do a google search for your specific breed (& allow a couple days either way just to be sure)[​IMG]

    Well I don't think that they are going to hatch. Today was day 26 and still nothing. I will wait until day 28 I think and then get rid of the eggs. Boy I wish they would of hatched.
