This coming week I lock down my runner duck and royal palm turkey eggs I got from the crazy 24 hour auction thread. Hoping for better success with these turkey eggs than the 5 I got from a friend. I know at least 3 or 4 runner ducks were alive and active when I candled around day 14..
. I am hoping I can use some of my graduation gift money to buy me a better candler (one of those ovascope high intensity ones)... I just am having such a hard time with a flashlight to be sure of what looks right.
I am wanting to also get some more turkey eggs to hatch in the near future...
Meanwhile I wait and hope until it is time to candle and lockdown to see how things are going... am due to candle the chicken eggs that are incubating too so hoping for a lot of signs of life later this week and lots of hatching next Sat while I am away at graduation.
That is my current update/hatch status.
Saturday 3.5 hour drive one way to get JG hatching eggs. Pick uo eggs and talk and stretch just to turn around and drive em home. All 18 are in the bator. My rear is still numb and my back is giving me fits from being idle. We made it there and back safe thank God! I realize some people think I am nuts for it. Why did you not just have them shipped? Well I would have if I trusted my 22 yr old to get his self up to go get them and set em, but I don't at this time. Burr under his saddle currently. So yup I just went full crazy chicken lady on this one
But hey I will hopefully have some awesome freaking birds soon.
