    Can I put some (2) peafowl eggs under one of my broody hens. I have a few that have gone broody and was wondering if that would work.

    Cochin banties are the best, mine did 4 or 5 each and my little Japanese did 2, and they all did it inside my house. Once a day they'd hope out of their box and go to the door to be let out, just like a dog or cat and when they were done they'd be back at the door.
