    1 - old eggs.
    2 - eggs stay under the sun too much time.
    3 - in one pen ... 1 male + 5 peahens is better .... no stress ... no conflicts .... real matings !

    The males are probably to busy trying to get in each other's way to mate successfully. I agree keeping a male with several females on their own is a much better plan.
