I wanted to start a new thread on our hatching eggs that way it would all be on one thread.
We have 40 eggs, set to hatch in 6, 5 day intervals starting tomorrow. Chickens, then turkeys and chickens, then turkeys and chickens and ducks, then turkeys and ducks, then ducks, then turkeys and ducks.
We heard peeping in our incubator this morning and the first egg actually "pipped" tonight.
Hatching eggs is like sitting on pins and needles. I am so excited. I said i would have been happy if one egg hatched but its looking like all of them might hatch in the next 24 hours.
I can't believe we did it right on my first try. I read so many stories about people loosing all the birds on the first hatch or only having one egg hatch. I received a lot of advice before incubating eggs and I have tried to apply all of it. I don't anticipate we will have 100% hatch every time, but I'll take this one as a big win if all hatch and are healthy. Feeling Blessed!
