I decided to try to hatch some peafowl eggs. I won an auction on eBay and received 8 eggs today. Here are some of the eggs -



Here are three with one of my Brahma chicken eggs -


Are these peafowl eggs? I thought they would be larger than chicken eggs.

Also, any tips for incubating would be appreciated. I've hatched many chicks but this is a first for me.

Thanks!

The brown egg in your second pic maybe a pea egg but if thats a dime in the same pic it is waay too small for a peacock egg. Pea eggs are a very lite tan color and about twice the size of a medium-large chicken egg.

The brown egg is from one of my chickens. The coin is a quarter.

That's what I was afraid of. Hopefully this seller made an honest mistake and will fix the problem. Otherwise, these are mighty expensive guinea eggs.
