    I have had 8 peahens and two peacocks all breeding age for almost a year now. The peahens laid almost 90 eggs last season all of which I tried to incubate and was not successful. I would really like to raise some young this season. My question is...if I allow the peahen to sit and hatch a clutch of eggs, and I collect the young upon hatching, will she lay and hatch more eggs?

    Yes she will if it is not to late in the season.
    Where your eggs not fertile or were you having trouble hatching them in the incubator ?

    Please post some photos of your pretty peas if you can, we have a thread here called show off your peas and all of us share our photos there.
