    So, last summer we got two peachicks that were about 2 months old and unrelated. Luckily, one turned out to be a peacock and one a peahen! :3 This summer, however, the male's making mating calls, fanning his feathers, etc, and the Peahen's started laying. Are the eggs any good to incubate? She seems to be going broody, so should I let her? May anything hatch, even though they're only about a year old? Any help's good. :3

    I have had yearlings lay ,but i keep them with 2 yr peacock. Pull the egg and incubate them, then he will be older the 2 nd and 3rd set...

    Unless you have a older male with her the eggs want be fertile.
