I am new to peafowl. I have collected several peahen eggs and began to put them in the incubator a few at a time. My first 4 should have been hatched by yesterday and are not. (30 days) I am so disappointed.I can see there are babies in there but am not sure there is movement. I have some eye problems and so when I am candling them what I think is movement probably isn't...I'm just not sure. They are still in the bator...day 31. Any hope for them?
I was able to keep the temp and humidity reasonably close to what it should be so I don't know what I did wrong. The humidity now at hatching time is only 61...I couldn't get it any higher plus I have eggs in there to hatch at different times.
Then on to the next batch: I am worried that my other eggs with come to a similar problem...I don't want a bunch of dead peachicks!!! I finally got some hens (chickens) interested in being broody. Since the incubator process doesn't seem to be working should I move the eggs (second and third batch) to a hen...if so how many peafowl eggs could I put under a medium size hen?
I am not new to using the incubator I have hatched dozens of chicken and guinea eggs successfully. I realize peahen eggs are a bit more temperamental getting a successful hatch.
Can anyone help me with suggestions?
