    hen is with breeding age male and juvenile male. She has laid 18 eggs all over the pen, none ever in same place. She is supposed to be young female approx 3. I have incubator at the ready. This has been going on since April 6 and it is now May 22. Any suggestions. I would like to put most recent eggs in incubator. Can the older eggs be incubated also?
    Should we just leave them alone?
    I have raised peacocks before but mine were free range and we didn’t have this kind of problem. Any ideas?

    If the temperatures are not too crazy then it should be ok. Not preferred, but ok.

  3. Viability drops off greatly after ten days especially if they have not been rotated. The early April eggs are most likely no good but I would set anything fresher than two weeks and candle out the clear and blood rings in seven to ten days. The older eggs can be boiled and fed back.
