    I wouldn't throw them away. Nothing else wouldn't you cook the eggs and feed them back to flock like with chickens? Only infertile eggs. I felt like I wouldn't have success incubating them bc need of higher humidity (I failed with duck eggs) but yes I HATCHED OUT 4 actually.

    A second year hen will lay about six eggs, a three year old hen around 24, and a four year hen can lay 36. Your results can vary and older hens will lay less and yes there is generally a break between clutches.

    Just wondering if there is anyone in Idaho that raises and sells peafowl? I live near Lewiston, Idaho.

    I'm in Nampa, Idaho. I breed Indian Blue and White peafowl. I sell Indian Blue peachicks $20 each, White peachicks $40 each. They are straight run. Right now I'm sold out of chicks. I should have some late spring early summer. Here are my breeding peafowl. IMG_3276.JPG IMG_3419.JPG IMG_3428.JPG IMG_3673.JPG
