kathye, She will go through the same cycle again and possibly a third or fourth time. They are not that hard to hatch. What are you using?
How many eggs does one peahen lay and what time frame is that? - Page 2
From the UPA:
"Peahens will sometimes lay fertile eggs as yearlings. They will lay these eggs late in the summer after they have turned one year old. The best chance for a yearling hen to lay eggs is when she is in the same pen as a mature male."
Wow learned something here. Never knew they layed that many. Is it all in the spring and you pulled them to double clutch sorta speak?
Are they all in sucession, Dont know if i spelled that right. Like after one clutch, its another and then another or are yall talking skipping a month or so?
Honestly, I usually don't notice the down time because I usually have three or more females in a pen. I would guess the downtime is usually a couple of weeks at the most. I think pulling the eggs daily tends to make them just keep on laying with minimal down time.
Egg laying started so early this year, that it is going to be interesting to see hhow many eggs I will eventually get.
