    Hello. I’ve been using Farm innovators incubator for chickens and I’ve had a very good hatch rate for last 2 times.

    I was wondering if it will good to hatch peafowl and duck eggs?

    Has anybody tired hatching peafowl eggs in this incubator? And how was the experience ?

    I tried but no luck. 16 eggs were in the incubator non of them hatched. I cracked them open last night and figured that the yolks on each egg was broken and runny.
    I don’t know if it was the incubators fault or if it’s something wrong with our peahen. But some of the eggs were fertile but yet they ended up in same condition. Now I have 7 more eggs from the same pair. But I’ve put them under broody chicken. Let’s see if we have any luck with that.

    I've only had 2 out of Probably 20+peafowl eggs hatch using that incubator. New incubator and so far 2 of 2 hatched.
