    can I use my egg turner (chicken egg size) for peafowl eggs as is?? can it be modified if not?? what do folks use for peafowl eggs?? yep my incubator will be empty by next weekend. I keep telling my wife it's like a sports car can't let it sit. She tells me I don't own a sportscar. But i might own some peafowl eggs in the near future. Thanks for your help, Keystonepaul

    I'm not sure if you can use a turner or not as I turn mine manually. They are about 3 times the size of an average chicken egg.

    I heard that peafowl are really hard to incubate is that true [​IMG] ??? I really would like to try, but have been discouraged by what I have heard... [​IMG]

    Quote:Peafowl eggs fit in my GQF turner, it works.

    Not sure if they will fit into LG old type turner (with plastic inserts).
