    Rejected Chick

    There was a lost chick in my yard today. I think he must have been recently hatched because I found a peahen laying a nest on the other side of the fence. I brought him to her and she hissed. I tried putting him under her feathers but she keeps pecking him. The chick won't stop running to me...

    First egg not fertile, could the others be

    The first egg my peahen laid didn't have a bullseye in it. She's laid 3 other eggs and hasn't laid for a few days. If the first egg wasn't fertile could the rest of the clutch be fertile?

    Peahen losing feathers on stomach

    My peahen, Penny, has a bald spot on her stomach. Is it possible that it was caused by a fight with one of my cockerels? Is it normal for her to have a bald spot there? The male doesn't have it.

    Peafowl candling - duds?

    I haven’t hatched peafowl in years. I have 4 eggs in my still air incubator. Today is day 17. I’ve candled every few days since day 7 and I haven’t seen veins at all. The eggs are very hard to see through so I wasn’t too worried. But the development seems to have stopped. I can’t find any good...

    Peahen wanted in Devon Pennsylvania

    I'm hoping to find an India Blue peahen for free or not too much, or maybe in trade (very reluctantly) for my all white peahen. I have an India Blue peacock and the peahen just will not give him the time of day. Chris in Devon PA, posted May 15 2021

A new nail started growing in immediately and the swelling went down after the old nail fell off. The white went away too. I noticed this morning that the toe is turning...
