My Peacocks Hatched

Recommended Posts

For the past few weeks, I have been incubating indian peafowl. Usually, I try to hatch quails, guineas, chickens, or runner ducks because the chance of 10 of them hatching isn't even close to that of 1 peacock hatching. When I was little, my family had only once hatched a peacock, and we've tried over 30 more eggs. In this batch of 6 that we ordered, 2 are hatching right now. I'm so excited! Kirby, my peacock, was my first pet.

I love peacocks! They are so beautiful... I love how a lot of them are a dark blue color, which is my favorite color.

I have two cameras. We shot some amazing video of the hatching and currently. One needed a "C-section" because he/she was stuck. I'll post pics by tomorrow. If you can't find this thread, it'll also be in my log.

I remember my old peacock, Kirby. He was a doll. He would always peck at my shirt's collar and was an instant alarm clock. He went through a lot, even snapped his leg once. He lived a good life and died of old age. We still have his feathers that he had shed in a beautiful vase to remember him. He was a Blue Indian Peafowl.

First pet? I believe you're mistaken. A peacock named Kirby was my first pet. These ones are well likely to be my 200th pets.

Thank you. Right now, they're drying off in the incubator.

 

Sorry for the double-post. Here's the hatching. I'll post it in my log later. Yes, I intended this whole post to be one big link.
