    put your bater into lockdown, then keep your hands off and don't open it. [​IMG] I know it's hard but you don't want to open during lockdown. Good luck on your hatch

    For chickens and turkeys, up the humidity-70% and decrease the temperature. The advice to not open the hatcher is to keep the moisture level up and prevent shrink wrapping.

    You may want to do a search for incubating peafowl and see what that turns up. Also try a search using a www search engine. GL​
