    I am going to be ordered my incubator and setting my peacock eggs in the next 2 weeks or so, so I have plenty of time to get things ready. What is the best way to keep the humidity? The incubator is pre set at 99.5F so I am not worried about that, any tips and other suggestions are greatly appericated.

    Purchase an accurate hygrometer for starters, maybe you already did that part?

    No I haven't done that part yet. What should the humidity be at? I read that you keep it around 49% then raise it during lockdown to 70%. Would that work?

    There is also a peafowl forum here where you can get more info from peacock breeders/owners. Good luck! [​IMG]
