How to Hatch Peacock Eggs


The term "peacock" refers to the male of one of two species of peafowl, widely known for its lavish tail plumage. The female, peacock hen, or peahen, is brown and doesn't display the courtship feathers like her mate. These relatives of the pheasant are sometimes kept as companion animals and can be hatched artificially in an incubator.

The process to hatching peacock eggs is very similar to the one used for hatching chicken eggs. Ready your incubator. Be sure it's clean. Set the temperature to between 99 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit with a relative humidity of 60 percent. Adjust these settings by opening or closing air vents and adding water pans. Try to maintain a constant temperature in the incubator for 2 days before setting the eggs.

Peacock hens begin laying eggs in April and will lay eggs every other day until a clutch of seven to ten eggs, is achieved. Keep the gathered hatching peacock eggs at room temperature, prior to placing in the incubator. Prepare the eggs for setting. Mark the date you put them in the incubator on one side of the eggs with a pencil or crayon. Set the hatching peacock eggs with the date side up and the narrow end pointed slightly down.

Turn the hatching peacock eggs 180 degrees at least three times, daily. Be sure that they're all always date side up or date side down. Turn them an odd number of times each day, to be sure they don't rest on the same side every night.

Candle the eggs (that is, shine a bright light through the shell) after one week and record any development. If after 10 days you see no growth in an egg, it probably isn't fertile. Remove it, so that it doesn't spoil and contaminate the incubator.

Stop turning the eggs after 28 days and increase the humidity to 90 percent. Prepare a place to keep your hatched peacock chicks, prior to their arrival. Let the peacock chicks hatch out of their eggs on their own, whenever possible. When they are fully dry, move them to their prepared area.
