    I'm new to peafowl and this weekend I picked up 5 eggs. My best broody hen just started sitting yesterday so I gave her an egg today. She made the funniest noise like she couldn't breathe and looked horrified! She eventually sat down again. The other four eggs I popped in the incubator. I'm considering giving her more eggs instead of hatching in incubator or maybe giving the rest at day 25? What do you think? She's a fairly large hen - Hedemora.
