    I got 5 eggs set a week ago I know they take longer than chickens but I have two eggs that dont look like there doing anything. How much should I wait?

    Wait either few more days or another week then candle those two again if you are not 100% sure these are not growing.

    I candle peafowl eggs after 10 days, they take 28 days, so you can't see much at 7 days.
