Today,after 3 years I have finally,finally hatched a cameo peachick.My list to reach this goal is as follows. 2010 Purchased from e-bay 6/1/10 6+ Cameo hatching eggs-seller from Mississippi-$91 6/10/10 4 Cameo w/e hatching peafowl eggs from Tennessee-$65 Seeing no development in any of the first 6+egg auction,I opted to buy more 6/13/10 6+ ANY EXTRA CAMEO-Cameo pied fertile eggs from Mississippi again(not the same seller as first group) $95.99 7/6/10 4 plus any extra Cameo b/s-straight Cameo hatching eggs from Kentucky-$55.00 7/10/10 Bought 10+ mixed peacock eggs from Bigcreekpoultry off e-bay auction for $102,,actually had one that hatched,the only one from 18 purchased CAMEO ONLY eggs. This lone hen passed last spring from being egg-bound before I could help her. 2011 6/4/11 Bought Cameo mixed eggs from a breeder in Ohio-10 eggs total-$150 less shipping 6/20/11 Seeing only 2 of the above eggs showing any development I started e-bay searching again Bought 6 Cameo-Oten(as they were spelled) from seller in South Dakota-3 was broken upon arrival,2 other had air sacks floating-last never showed any development-$75 shot Ohio 2 developing eggs both quit,so rush was on for another group of Cameo eggs,, 7/5/11 E-Bay seller from Kansas offering 4 mixed Cameo plus extras-$64 plus shipping 7/16/11 Above group showing 2 developing but noticed another e-bay auction listing for 6 mixed Cameo eggs from Kentucky-fierce bidding since season was getting close to ending-$110 less shipping Nothing hatched from any bought eggs for 2011 2012 I didn't buy any Cameos,although a trio wet thru the Mt Hope Auction labeled as Peach but were really Cameo's,, March 2013,,bought a Cameo w/e male-2 Cameo w/e hens $600 total My total expenditures for trying to get Cameos in Pea Palace has amounted to $1408 less shipping.This new arrival had me edgy yesterday as the egg had pipped Tuesday nite but no progress was made. Last nite I peeled some shell away and noticed blood close to the membrane around the peachicks head and thought I may have caused more harm than good but this morning it was still alive but no farther along than I had left it. I came home tonight and finally helped it completely out of the egg. 3 hrs later it was fluffy and dry and ready to join the other 23 peachicks that hatched this week. I know many believe buying and trying to hatch shipped eggs is much cheaper.I would have been a lot of money ahead if I would have just bought adults 2 years ago. If you keep records such as these,once you start adding things up this hobby becomes much more like an addictive obsession.
