The due date for the eggs to hatch should have been around the 10th. Today is the 13th. I haven't checked on her yet today (just a reminder I can't just walk out in the backyard to see my peafowl since they are at my grandma's 2 miles away so every day we visit them at 3:00 normally.) I read something about peahens knowing if they have a bad egg and they will roll the bad egg out of the nest or something...Deerman said that is not true and they don't know so now I hope that all her eggs are not bad. Dragon is just now losing his train he still has tons of feathers left and so I wouldn't think fertility would be a problem...Maybe it is too early still for me to worry but I just want to make sure that she will stop if all the eggs are bad. I don't even know how many eggs she has. I would take the eggs and candle them but I don't want to scare her off the nest making her abandon the eggs. Damsel is doing such a great job staying on the nest and being out their in the heat and rain I just hope that it all pays off for her. If the eggs are bad will I have to force her off the nest? How long until I know they probably are never going to hatch? She won't kill herself sitting on eggs for too long right? I give her a few treats when I visit and have a small dish of water next to her. I tried to make her sit up a little to see if she would show me the eggs but she hissed at me and tried to bite me so I just left her alone. Oh and on a side note I found an egg next to the hose inside the pen on the 11th. I still have it in the pen waiting to see if a peahen makes a nest there or if nothing happens then I might try incubating it. Peep wants brothers and sisters!
