    We have incubated and hatched out lots of bantams in our little ginat still air, any tips for peafowl eggs.

    We are late planting our garden this year due to all the rain and I went to rototill and I found where our missing peahen has set up a nest. She was peering out from the tall weeds on her nest! If she had picked the end of the garden under the rubard I would leave her but she is smack in the middle of our realitivly small garden.

    I thought I would try and incubate, normally our 2 girls hatch out their own eggs.
    Thanks

    How long has she been gone for? Maybe they are close to hatching and they will leave on their own?

    Mine is doing the same thing. She has not layed yet, but she has smashed down all my beets.
