    I just got my first 2 peafowl eggs today (in the mail). WOW..I didn't realize how huge they'd be!! They are black shouldered... and I'd really like some pied too...and I'm right on the verge of buying some more eggs...but I've never heard if they are difficult to incubate or not? I've been doing pretty well with all my chicken eggs..about 50% success rate with shipped eggs and 99% with my silkie eggs (only one failed to hatch).
    So should I take the leap and buy the pieds that I'm drooling over or wait and see how these 2 eggs do? What to do...what to do? [​IMG]

    I think I would incubate those first then the pied afterwards. See how this hatch goes. I wish you lots of luck [​IMG]
