Hello all ... I am totally new to peafowl. I have a young pair and the hen had laid 6 eggs, 2 days apart until 5/20. She didn't lay yesterday (5/22) and is not sitting on the eggs. Does this mean that she probably isn't going to hatch the eggs herself? How long should I wait to see if she will? If she doesn't, can the eggs still be incubated? The first egg was laid 5/10.

I would incubate the eggs, not all the hens will sit, especially since its been 13 days since she laid the first egg, its not a good idea to leave them without incubating for longer than 10 days.
