    Should be out...takes upto 24 hrs. after they pip.

    That should be its beak ,not foot.

    Did you put all eggs under her at the same time ?

    Quote:no i put them under her at different times.
    it has been trying to get out for about 20hrs, the membrane is yellow where it has been open for longest?
    should i interfere?

    Best to pull it and put in an incubator, your peahen will stop setting after the first egg hatch....maybe to late as she can hear it... sound like be best to hatch them in a incubator. When using any broody ,no matter hen,duck,or peahen..all eggs need set at the same time.........

    when you said pull it, did you mean pull it out his shell or put it in a incubator?
    do i need to spray it with water?
