    Hey, I'm a first time blogger. I am looking for some fertile peafowl eggs to incubate. I live in NC so there are none around here. I am hoping to find some south of here that can be shipped

    You won't find any eggs until Spring. Peafowl are seasonal layers. [​IMG]

    and like rbamterry said,, they only lay in the spring... then they only lay a dozen or so.

    Thanks. I am very new to poultry. I have chickens ans guineas. I love my birds and am looking forward to adding to my farm. I have an incubator and am dying to give it a go. I do not have any more room for chickens. Do any of you know of a good first time incubation breed that I could get now?
    Thanks

    regular rhode islands,, black astro's, buff orps,,, just about any of the "usual" chicken breeds,,, your guineas lay like peafowl,, they should lay in the spring into summer,, but their hard to hatch for first timers,, i would see if you could find someone with fertile eggs near you, and try a dozen.
    that said,,, if you dont have room for more chickens,, how ya gonna fit peafowl in there. [​IMG]

    Agree with, the1much. Peafowl take alot more room than chicken.
