    Actually the peafowl are always free ranging but theyre not totally enclosed. I had a few problems of them jumping into the neighbors houses but not anymore. They roost in the cage at night.

    As for the incubator, I've bought it here in the united arab emirates and its the pro model. It worked fine the first year but them some components started rusting and giving me problems (maybe because of the water quality). The problem is its very hard to find spare parts and the company is based in Korea which makes it not practical. However the humidity and temperature control is impressive and saves a lot of time and effort.
