    For hatching peafowl eggs? I don't think so. From what I've read it appears that peafowl and chicken eggs hatch at the same temp and humidity, but peafowl eggs take longer. Is that correct? Also, if I posted a picture of the eggs would you be able to tell me what kind they are?

    Weight loss on the current four as of day 26:
    12%
    17%
    11%
    13%

    Interestingly, 11% is the one that has pipped externally.

    Well, I got my incubator set up and stabilized and set my eggs today! Hopefully I'll have some chicks around June 26 :)

    The peachick I assisted hatch on Tuesday is doing great. It was kinda iffy as I thought it seemed a bit too weak and continued to have a ticking to its every breath but now 3 days old it is flapping about and drank for the first time last night on its own. I did tape it's legs as it had one that kept going out to one side so just in case I wanted to have them right as it was on its belly legs spread more than I liked.

    Today I weighed and it's lost some of that baby weight. From 84g at hatch to 70g Day 3.

    It's navel completely closed and healed just perfectly. Here's to hoping for a girl.

    Oh and I'm guessing this is a IB. Would that appear accurate? These were shipped eggs with a variety of possibilities.
