    I've babied these 2 black shoulder eggs all this time...I'm sure there's nothing in the one...but I've seen a big healthy chick dancing in the other one up to a few days ago. Tonite makes 28 full days and I'm just praying for a pip! [​IMG] I thought I've gotten over the whole "Hatching Anxiety Syndrome" lol...but I've wanted peacocks for soooo long and I had really hoped to get at least one chick from these eggs. I know there's still some time left...I just wish I'd hear a peep or see a pip or even a little movement! [​IMG] Off to stare into the little white box again LOL

    I hope some action starts soon! Best of luck. It's so tough.

    It's a minimum of 28 days for peafowl with some breeds taking up to 32 days. Just give it time especially since you've seen it moving. I have one peafowl viable egg in bator now (out of 6) due to hatch May 4th. I too was hoping for more but I'll get those later. I'm thrilled to see my one developing and moving around.

    Good luck.
