Is it better for me to put the peacock eggs in the incubator or to let the hen to hatch them
If the hen will sit on them let nature take it's course
I hatch all of mine under my cochin bantam and silkie hens. Have had outstanding hatch rate from them, heard it is hard hatching them in an incubator. Sometimes the younger peahens don't want to set. I had one peahen that wanted to set last year and she hatched 5 out of 6 eggs. Good Luck.
Do you take the chicks away from your silkies and cochins or let them keep them a while? I was under the impression that the hardest part was raising the chicks after they hatch since they don't have enough sense to figure out what their food and water is for.

Quote:She's about 2 yrs old now. I will see what happens if she will sit one them I will let her if not I'll hatch them.
I just asked a similar question and consensus seemed to be let them sit on them a week or two then put them in the bator.
