Pheasant hatching eggs
The recommended procedures for hatching pheasant eggs in an incubator-
Days1- 20(in incubator) the temperature should be 99.4 F and the humidity should be 83-84 F wet bulb (53% relative humidity).
Days 21-25 (hatcher)maintain temperature at 98 F and the humidity should be 83-84 F wet bulb (53% relative humidity).
- Increasing humidity prevents chicks from sticking to the egg shell membrane.
- Temperature and the turning of the eggs are the two most important factors in the hatching of pheasant chicks.
- Extremes in temperature (high or low) and not turning the eggs for periods of over twenty-four hours will severely reduce hatchability.
