My DHs boss wants to give me peafowl eggs and i just wanted to know if I should or not
Gorgeous birds in general. I guess it comes down to the coop space and ranging space to accomodate them.
Heck yes!!! I mean have you seen what these eggs sell for? If you do not have the room for them would be the only drawback I could foresee.
If their calls aren't too annoying for you, I'd say go for it. Some live down the street, and they aren't annoying to me, I think they sound cool, but some people are bugged by them.
I have heard them before and it is a cool noise to me so maybe i will take them
that noise bugs me to death for some reason.
ABSOLUTELY! WITHOUT HESITATION!
Then reality sets in and ...
Do you really want to 'keep' peafowl, but it was fun while it lasted. I'd have to try to hatch the pea eggs.
If you don't want to keep adults, you could always hatch them and offer them for re-homing or sale.
I can't stand overly noisy birds. I draw the line at peafowl and guineas.
Do any of you know if they are like chicken eggs to hatch?
They take longer and a little higher humidity and for some reason they are hard as heck to hatch. They just die too easy.
