    I cannot belive no one wants an almost brand new incubator with bells and whistles.

    If you see button quail you will want to raise them. They can sit in a bottle cap!

    Can other types of birds be incubated with a Quail rack? I'm looking for an incubator to start trying to hatch peafowl.

    Peafowl should be hand turned they do not hatch well sitting up right in egg cups. They also if possiable should be started at least for the first week under a broody hen or turkey because of them constantly turning the eggs you get a better hatch rate.

    Sorry to jump in on your questions to Miss Prissy. Also sorry if you already know these things about hatching peafowl eggs [​IMG]

    Here is a picture of one of our Peafowl eggs next to a extra large chicken egg

    Sorry for jumping in on your post too Miss Prissy but I DO appreciate the info from BlueBloomers since the peafowl are going to be a whole new area for me.

    If I was to purchase Miss Prissy's incubator is the only thing I would need is to purchase different turners for different breeds after letting the Peafowl sit under a broody hen or turkey? It's obvious I'm a newbie to incubators as I am to Peafowl:/ . This is the greatest site to get information! LOVE IT!
