Hi,

I was feeding last evening and when I opened the Golden Pheasant door to feed them, I was shocked to see a freshly laid egg. We still have about 4" of snow on the ground and it is in the teens at night and are forcasted to have another 4-8 in the next two days. What is up with this? Shocked Has anyone else had any eggs this early? Confused I noticed the males calling out a lot and strutting but I never dreamed of eggs this early.

Kevin

I think it is my old IB hen of unknown age that laid 3 eggs weeks ago. My neighbor ate them and none of them were fertile. Once I found the first egg, I went ahead and set up the nesting boxes...now I have three more eggs. Don't know which of my two IB hens laid them.

My male will be three in May and if quite full of himself and has been calling for weeks now. I have a feeling this is going to be a long mating season!
