 s85  I've read up and searched this site and couldn't find anything close to an answer on this.  I have three ringed-neck pheasant hens and two roosters.  I have separated the roosters with their own hens and have been successful in getting eggs for a week.  In theory, I should be getting twice as many eggs from the rooster with two hens but I'm not even getting as many as from the single hen.  Should I switch the roosters to try to increase production or just leave as they are? 

Also, how long can I keep the eggs before incubation?  I have them at 55 deg and about 70 percent humidity (which is what I found on this site).  I'd like my incubator to be as full as it possibly can be.

Thanks in advance for the advice!

Every hen is different, you may have a late starter or late layer. That not all bad because that hen may lay longer into the summer.
I would not change anything leave the roosters alone and let them settle down.
Make sure you are feeding them "Game Bird Layena"  or any game bird feed that's around 20% protein.
Keep the eggs for no longer than 7 days before putting them into the incubator.

You start moving birds around during breeding season, and you may end up having a blood bath....
