My peafowl started laying on March 14th and as of April 1st has laid 6 eggs. I have read that the eggs lose viability after 7 - 10 days and also that she should start sitting after laying 6 - 8 eggs. As I do the math, even if she starts sitting after 6 eggs, at least half of the eggs may no longer be viable. If she ends up laying 8 eggs then even more of the early eggs will not be viable. Is this just the way it is or am I missing something here?
