    I have been considering getting some peafowl eggs and hatching them. I have some questions:
    Would I be able to incubate peafowl eggs with a broody chicken?
    How loud are peafowl?
    How often do they lay?
    Any other advice or information would be nice, too. I am able to get fertilised eggs from a local poultry/fowl farm.

    Yes you could hatch them under a broody chicken and I think the males can be pretty loud at times. Maybe someone else can help I haven't ever had any but I'm getting some eggs soon to hatch.Btw there is a peafowl section you might get more replies there.
