York Chapter #67
Jr's host/hatch out little Pheasant Birdies!
"We had 34 eggs that were incubated. They started peeping on Sunday, May 5. By Tuesday evening 1 chick had hatched. We divided up the eggs and took 19 to the Board of Directors meeting (it was meant to be 20 but in the excitement we miscounted) on Tuesday. During the BOD two chicks hatched. We made up 3 brooding set-ups for a few Juniors (Holly, Elizabeth, and David/Jocelyn) and their families to take home and share in the experience. Of our 34 eggs we ended up having about 15 hatch out, pretty good for a first try. We plan to hold the chicks at each Juniors house until Mother’s Day evening, when we will transfer them to the Pheasant coop.
"Here’s a time lapse of the pheasant eggs we hatched.
