Both are out! The first one got out all on its own. The second one was zipping and seemed to be a little stuck so I just helped it the rest of the way out.

Definitely! Probably tomorrow. I'm very prepared this time - I managed to find a medicated game bird starter, I have vitamins and probiotics for their water, and they'll be staying in the house in a brooder for a few weeks before moving to the workshop brooder.

Is there a way to turn the temp down. That will cook the eggs. If not I wonder if adding water could help.

Make sure temp is around 100 F. I go with 99.6 F and 60-68% humidity. Humidity can be different for others.

Usually the mother is the best place for them. I would make sure they're getting a medicated feed. The hen can eat it, medicated feed won't hurt her.

Hi please advise for peafowl eggs i am using 50%-55% humidity for first 25 days then shifting eggs to hatcher where i raise the humidity to 65%-70% does this sound correct as a local who also hatches peafowl says humidity should be 80% during the whole 26-28 days of incubation please advise
