    Hi, My homemade incubator has already 6 chicken eggs since last week and today I got 4 peafowl eggs.(I got from ebay which came week later:( ) And I am about to add these eggs too.
    Can anyone tell me if it's possible please? I do not want to ruin the peafowl eggs [​IMG].


    thanks alot.

    Peacock is a blue indian(that's what i am being told) and 1 of the eggs is smaller than other 3. apparently, small one is belong to the youngest hen.

    My concern is the humidity between 18-21th day of the chicken eggs. ?
