Could this be... a peahen egg?

    Found this in one of the bottom nesting boxes this morning. I have had double yolkers before, but the egg crate wouldn't even close on this one. The nesting boxes are small, shallow chicken nesting boxes. Could the peahen even lay in there? It was towards the front. It is late in the year. People on here think my peafowl are only yearlings, but the person we bought them from said male is two female is three. The male doesn't have his train yet so even if it was I would assume it probably is not fertilized. If it is a chicken egg, I feel sorry for that poor hen!
