  3. I always candle them at 10 days.. I have seen veins as early as 5 days.. but I never toss one before 10 days just to be sure

    I have nothing to contribute other than I am wild with jealousy that you're hatching peacocks. I would LOVE to hatch and own them.

    Not terribly helpful, eh?


    What kind are you hatching? How many?

    I have 15 eggs in the bator as of right now. They are still laying though..this is the first yr for 3 of them...so I am running fertility check and just trying to get more on the farm.

    We have 1 Purple Male, 1 Purple Female, 1 Purple Pied, 1 India Blue Female, 1 White Male, 1 White Female... So they will either be pied or purebreds...

    I can't wait..... [​IMG]

    They are just gorgeous. I hope you get a great hatch rate with them.
