Crap. Pulled a turkey egg out that quit on me, plus another one from a later set. So, I'm down to 2 turkey eggs due on the 19th, and three for the next date (have to try to research when I put them in, LOL. Thank goodness I post everything on here. I also candled my midget white eggs and saw only one with a little red dot, which I was thinking was a start and quitter, only to realize that they're only four days old, lol. So, hopefully the rest are just poking around on developing. I have 11 midget white eggs in there now (just set the six that arrived today), so hopefully I'll get at least a breeding trio for next year! The royal palm and mixies should be here on Saturday. Hopefully they don't get lost somewhere for the weekend. I'm not sure how many were sent, but she mentioned sending some other turkey eggs as a fertility tester. :D I am officially a turkey addict.
ETA: I never updated on the turkeys that hatched from my own eggs. The last one needed help, then I had to give him a bath because he was shrink wrapped. SHE (why do I always say he?!) is fine, but I lost my biggest, most robust turkey poult the first day. I was being a complete moron and forgot all about the pine chips not being good for the first few days and had them on pine chips, which she swallowed and choked on. :( As soon as I opened her mouth and saw that, I grabbed the rest, dumped the brooder and put the paper towels down. Poor baby, and all because I was being an idiot.
