    I'm so jealous!! My husband is being very stubborn about us getting any peacocks!!

    What kind of peacocks are you hatching? What do the eggs look like? How long is the incubation period?

    Any other requirements or are they the same as chickens.

    My neighbor has a pair and I thought I'd ask him for a couple of eggs.
