    This is my first time incubating pheasants eggs. I was told that the percentage hatch rate is lower than 50%. Is this right?

    Quote:NO! Hatch rate depends on MANY factors- and are you considering the hatch rate on just fertile eggs or the hatch rate on all eggs first set.

    Either way:
    depends on condition of breeder birds
    depends on incubation methods
    depends on age of eggs before incubation
    depends on humidity & temp during incubation
    depends on humidity during hatch
    depends on if eggs were shipped


    It does not matter if they are duck, chicken, pheasant etc

    One person may have almost a 100% and the next may have 0%

    ok.Well i guess that sums it up then. Just some breeds are harder to hatch than others.
