    My daughter got a pair of red golden pheasants in the fall...on a whim....she is in love with them and they are doing great. She went to check on them this evening and she found 3 eggs. They were all spread out and as she went in their pen, the rooster pecked a hole in one of the eggs and ate it. My question is, what do we do now? Do we have to incubate? Or will she sit on them? And why are they spread out? We are new to this. My daughter is 9. What should we do?

    Good luck!

    Hi and welcome to BYC. Like Teila, I know squat about pheasants, but she's given you a link that will help.

    Good luck

    Could you quickly erect a fence around her so the male cannot get to her or the eggs? Otherwise he may have acted that way because he was disturbed to have humans around.

    Please do post on the "pheasant thread." put that in the search box and it will pop up for you.
