    Is there enough room to hatch a couple? Or is it too small? Thanks!

    Just dying to use new incubator!

    You think they are in a hurry [​IMG] ?? 11 min with no answer [​IMG] .. seen them on here for days with out an answer.

    Anyhow, You probably will not find any fertile Peafowl eggs this late in the season , hope you can wait til April or May of next year [​IMG]

    I have never seen one so don't know how big it is.

    Temp 99*

    humidity: some say none others say 60 %, ( I like to keep mine around 40 to 45 % but that's me)

    28 day hatch

    If and when you find the peafowl eggs the answer to your question can be answered with a bit of research. Find what temp, humdity and days incubating are required for peafowl. Does your incubator hold those temps and humidity levels? You have your answer.

    I understand peafowl can be a bit tricky but I will confess to never having hatched a peafowl.

    I didn't mean I was going to hatch them this year. I meant, would a peachick have enough room to hatch in such a small incubator. Thank you everybody![​IMG]

    Like I said, I have never seen the size incubator your talking about so it is hard to tell you if Peafowl eggs will fit.............

    If you have a Turkey egg try it they are not that much smaller then a peafowl egg.

    The incubator Mini Eco is about 6 1/2" tall from bottom to top. How big are peachickies? (compared to baby chickens or ducks?)

    I'm going to say probably not a great idea. They're a LOT bigger than chicken eggs.
