    yes i found it about a week ago....I had stop setting eggs, most peafowl are done this time of year. Even when peahen lay eggs are not fertile if the males have drop their train.

    Don't think she is the mother, as there are 9 eggs and she is BS and only male with a train is a bs pied w.e.. 3 chicks are blue. She was pen with a bs split peach male before.
    peahens will lay in the same nest.

    I hatch well over 100 peachicks, but yes nice to see a peahen with chicks. Not that i like not knowing the chicks background.
