    i got my last eggs from my peas on july 4th.we had one peahen just hatched her chick out an must have triggered something in our white peahen.i went out there today an my white peahen charolette was sitting on 4 eggs.do you think they will be fertile our peacock lost his tail 3-4 weeks ago an have not seen any breeding in 2 weeks.you think at day 7 i should give her a few chicken eggs so she will hatch something if they are not fertile.do you think there is any chance they could be fertile?

    *shrug* I would think there's a chance, even if it's not a huge chance. Wouldn't give her chicken eggs to hatch though- if hers don't she'll be ok without chicks. Since the season is ending, she probably won't lay again so you wouldn't have to worry about her sitting again right away.
