    Can you incubate eggs in an incubator that turns the eggs automatically?

    That's the easiest way to do it! The eggs just need taken off the turner 3 days before they are due to hatch. ;)

    Absolutely.

    Wait a minute...I know zero about hatching peafowl.
    I assumed you meant chicken eggs, sorry.

    Pea eggs sometimes do better incubated on their sides. If u have an auto-turner that works w that configuration, great. Supplemental turning (in addition to the auto turner) can be helpful too.
