    hay i have been given some peafowl eggs and i was wondering can they have the same temperature as the chicken eggs in an incubator?
    thanks!!! really need some replies [​IMG] because he keeps giving me them. i dont want to tell him that i can not have them because of the temperature. He is a really old man and has had chickens for a long time. but he has not had peafowls before and i dont know if i can have them together. i have known him for a long time and to make it harder to tell him is that its my mothers boy friend and they have been together for around 3 years now. Need to know.

    I really wish you were closer! Don't think the eggs would make it to me, or I would LOVE to take a few of them off your hands. Good luck with your hatch. Let me know how you do. We are thinking about hatching some next spring. Not many eggs available around here though.[​IMG]
