    Default 2019 South Dakota Pheasants

    My Brother and Nephew are raising up a bunch of chicks(700 of a mix run of chicks) this year due to the winterkill that hit the Midwest pretty hard. They are see lots of roosters still but not a lot of hens. So we are hoping we get at least 50% of the chicks are hens. We might get a late hatch from them after we turn them loose.
    We plan right now to be back there 2nd weekend of Nov again this fall.
    I will be taking back at least 3 dogs and a few more hunters.

    Are they incubating the eggs? I'm no where near a professional but doesn't an incubation with higher heat produce hens?

    No they are straight runs of chicks which means they don't sex the eggs before they hatch them out and you get what you get.
    These chicks are 3-4 weeks old. Should run close to 50/50 deal 50% hens and 50% roosters. But the straight run are cheaper then asking for all hens.
    350 hens would cost us just as much as a straight run of roosters and hens so we are willing to have more birds and less hens and still hope we get a 50/50 split.
