I have 1 white pea hen and 2 blues in with a white peacock. They have build up a huge stock pile of eggs and they are not sitting. what gives? They nest is nice and quiet with lots of cover. Am I peaking in too much or what?
Id incubate them or stick them under a chicken who's brooding... if you dont have ither... find a friend that has a brooding chicken... Make sure to take the cicken eggs away and replace with the peafowl eggs..
The two blue hens I bought as chicks and they are 3 this year, along with the white male. (He was suposed to be a black shoulder) I jsut bought the white hen a few months ago and was told she is 5 years old and has hatched her own eggs before. I know she is laying becuase I was in the pen and she was on the perch above me when she layed an egg! The egg hit my shouldger and then smashed on the ground.
I don't know if she was trying to tell me something or not.
I would love to ship people eggs no problem or have them come get some. I am selling my incubator and getting a "Real" one, so I don't want to plug in my old hubabator again. PM me if you want some and I do have a pay pal account. Not sure how much they are worth. I just marked 2 this morning that were layed already today or last night. Thanks!
I will go take some pictures of them so you can se what they look like.
I sure wish you did have at least one broody hen---I have a black Silkie hen that hatched out 2 white peachicks that are about 3 weeks old now and they sure are cute together, and boy, is she protective of those babies!!!
