    Been waiting all spring and finally got a couple eggs. Had a couple turkey eggs without spots that I thought were pea eggs but now I'm sure of what I have. Going to wait for a maybe 3 or 4 more eggs before I put them in the incubator. I'm keeping them at about 55 F right now until I get enough to incubate. Here is a picture; from left to right pea egg, turkey egg, EE egg. Haven't witnessed any breeding, but I'm gone at work all day. The peacock which is 3 years old has been displaying for over a month and the hen I think is 3 years old as well. Hopefully they are fertile.
