    My peahen started sitting on five eggs three days ago and will not leave the nest for anything!! I have yet to see her eat or drink and I'm concerned!! I have given her grapes, watermelon, cantaloupe, feed, and water but she won't touch any of it! Is this normal? It is suppose to get hot in the next few days and I am very scared for her well being. Is there anyone with any ideas? My other hen died just a couple of weeks ago mysteriously and I can't handle loosing another one.

    My hens just hatched some chicks. They only left the nest once a day, usually in the morning. Perhaps you are just missing it when she gets off? [​IMG]
