    Hello Everyone! I am hoping to get some peafowl eggs this season to incubate and hatch, I have been having excellent hatch rates and would like to give it a shot. Does anyone have any peafowl eggs that I could purchase? I'm in North Florida, willing to travel about anywhere in the tri-state area. Or if your further away and have had good luck shipping them, let me know. :)

    Did you ever find a source for peafowl hatching eggs? I'm in southwest Florida, and I'm also looking for a source that is as local as possible. Even if they come from the northern half of the state, they'll have a better survival chance than those shipped from out of state. Please let me know if you have any leads.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    I did! There is a lady in Havana Florida who has them. Mine actually just hatched and are BEAUTIFUL. I just got an assortment from her and ended up with a spaulding and a white. Only 2 of my 4 hatched, but it was my fault. I had some incubator issues.

    Her email is: [email protected]

  4. What a coincidence. I just e-mailed Mary Ellen earlier thanking her for some birds I picked up last year.
