    I really would like to have peafowl, but I want to hatch my own.[​IMG] I was wondering if anyone had ever bought peafowl eggs through the mail, and if so did they hatch?? I recieved chicken eggs throught the mail and had great luck with them, but i dont know anything about peafowl.[​IMG] Im just now starting to learn, so it wouldn't be untill next Spring when I get some.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    With any shipped eggs you have a 50/50 chance for a good hatch, Peafowl eggs are a little harder to hatch then chicken eggs. Turkey and Peafowl eggs are pretty close when hatching you treat them the same, But what I would do is find a breeder close to you and pick the eggs up chances for a better hatch that away.

    Don't get me wrong some people hatch a lot of shipped eggs, Myself I don't have very good luck at it.
