My wife asked the question " when will you stop hatching? last night. Followed by " don't you think you have enough birds now?"...
These could be bad signs....
What could be worse is I just put:
15 JJ turkey eggs
6 Adam turkey eggs
6 Buckeye Eggs (Duane Urch)
11 Dominque eggs (Urch again)
in the hatchers! Can you believe 11 Dom eggs hatched, I got 11 from him and by mistake he had a BA egg in the dozen. The only non-hatcher was the BA.
The buckeyes are 6 for 12, not bad for eggs I traveled to get. Even so a 75% rate going into the hatcher is not bad for me.
Now my hatchers are divided nicely so I can mark each chick. This will work good today...However I have:
32 Creamette eggs
6 Partridge Chanticler (YEAH!! Surprisingly these are good, the first good ones of the year, It took Ed a while to do his job, now I feel bad I trimmed him...)
3 Partridge Chanticler over EE........)
I might need to find a new hatcher. or a place to sleep at night....The good thing is Judy is working this weekend and might not notice the new chicks....
Ralphie: She does make some valid points. Your hobby may be taking over! LOL. Are alot of the birds for sale afterwards?
