    Hi, on day 11 here and thinking ahead. Does anyone know what day I should stop turning my pheasant eggs? Also, is that the day I should increase humidity? if so, what should my humidity be ideally for the last three days?

    Thank you.

    It depends what species of pheasants you are hatching. Here is a good time table for many of them. You stop turning 3 days before hatch day.

    It is basically the same as for chickens, but they don't hatch as aggressive as chickens. They tend to be pokey little buggers and take their good ole time. Around 70% humidity at hatch time is good. Good luck with your hatch.
