Ever since the boys, Devreux and Osiris, began making their very loud, screech-like mating calls, I’ve looked every day for an egg. Finally, on Monday we found our very first egg!
Peahens lay an egg every other day until they have a full clutch of about five to eight eggs, then they begin to set. On Wednesday morning, right on schedule, my mother found our second egg. Since we don’t want whichever peahen is laying to go broody this soon in the breeding season, we’re removing the eggs to incubate ourselves. Luckily, the brand new Brinsea incubator I ordered arrived this week.
