    I have mikado eggs in the incubator they take 28 day to hatch Do I stop turning day 25? 3 days before they hatch like chicken and ducks? I read that you stop turning all pheasant eggs on day 21 regardless of species. This just seems wrong to me.

    As far as I'm aware it's like all other breeds of birds 3 days before hatch date.
