First time incubating first lockdown 2 eggs piped!!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
This is my first attempt at incubation went into lockdown Sunday I have two eggs piped tonight one almost invisible just a few cracks and a slight raised area the other is a large area with a piece of shell missing and 3 small slits in membrane that the point of the beak comes out then goes back in. My question is is this normal or is something wrong? Thanks Shawn

Congrats.

I know it will be a long day at work. But sometimes it's the best thing.

Hatching can be more stressful staring at the bator all day. And it's easier to set on my hands at work than it is at the house while hatching.

Your turkey eggs are looking good
