    I know someone at work who owns peacocks. She told me that the eggs are very difficult to hatch in an incubator. Their broody hens have great success, however, so there is no fertility issue going on.

    I'm wondering if these eggs have some special needs, like duck or goose eggs? Anyone have any experience incubating peacock eggs?

    Hi Lynn,
    I know Peachick has peacocks, I bet she'll be able to advice you.
    if she doesn't see your post you can PM her.
