Yes, my pied peahen has been laying for at least a month.  I have one black Silkie hen setting on 2 of her eggs and 1 white Silkie hen setting on another 2 of her eggs.  She still has 5 eggs in the nest and she has not decided she is ready to set for herself yet, still laying eggs!  Last year she ended up having about 8 or so eggs in her nest before she decided that it was time for her to set!  I just let some of my Silkie hens help us out so that we can end up with more baby peachicks!   thumbsup

I'm getting 2-4 eggs a day!  I hate to admit it, but I've almost got too many eggs!  I got to see 3 of them lay their eggs last night! big_smile  Would love to have some green ones to go with my flock!

I'd love to hear from anyone interested in trading or selling eggs- there's a very lonely peacock here! PM me?

My cousin has 42 peahens & most have been laying for over a month. He had his first incubator hatch about 10 or 11 days ago.
