The First Hatching

Our first batch of incubator chicks have started to hatch.  These are Ringneck Pheasants from the ones we either purchased as chicks or incubated last year.    I'm trying to upload the video of one hatching out of the egg (a process that takes up to a day) but blogger is being a pain.  So, you'll have to head over to my facebook fan page to get a peek at the video itself.

This is what the Roosters will look like when they're mature.

And, in true Circle of Life, Farm fashion - the above rooster is now all cleaned and packed up and in the freezer to be a tasty meal one night. I've only eaten wild pheasant up until this point, so it'll be interesting to see the taste difference in the wild vs hand raised. 

Who wants to come over for dinner?
