    I want peafowl! They are just so stinking pretty. But everyone says "they're loud....they're messy" have they not been around chickens and roos?????

    I just went into lockdown with my isabells, ayam cemani, barnyard mix and sizzles. 30 eggs and all were moving! Some looked awfully small for 18 plus days but we shall see. I'm a bit nervous about hatching them upright in cartons. Just seems more natural to be laying down. Oh well still had a few loose air cells so I don't want to rock the boat.

    Mine are certainly worse than my roosters once they get going - and yet I'll be putting some eggs in the incubator tomorrow :rolleyes:

    My rock didn't make it, but at least it isn't suffering any longer. It just didn't seem strong from the beginning. It was pipped with no progress for a very long time. I think it was over 48 hours. So out of 18, I have 5 rocks and 6 beautiful blue silkies.

    I also have more eggs hatching on Tuesday. :) (10 eggs) I set them on Apr. 19 at 9:30 pm, so I will lockdown on Saturday evening.

    Slowly Losing it......
    I wasn't sure I was still in the running for that.
    Monkey and her brother got to watch chicks hatch last time. They enjoyed it very much.

    Oh goody. Do you try to coop them or just let them run around?
