    I am new to this forum. I live in Southern Indiana. I have 3 adult India Blue peacocks and one India Blue peahen and 7 Aracauna hens and a rooster who is part cochin, part Aracauna, and who knows what else. I'm attempting to hatch 6 peafowl eggs in a still air incubator for the first time do any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Also I am looking for preferably a breeding pair of pair of purple peafowl and green peafowl. Thanks!!!

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! I'm afraid I've never incubated peas before but please do pop by the pea section, here is the link ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/51/peafowl

    Welcome to the forum. Yes check out the pea fowl section. I've never hatched any myself but the thought crossed my mind. They are so beautiful. Good luck!
