I have a question for those who do alot of incubating. 

I got some eggs through the mail.  And they have been sitting with the points down for 24 hours.

I am going to my churches woman's retreat this weekend and was wondering if I start incubating them tomorrow morning will they be ok if they don't get turned till I get back?  I leave tomorrow and get back about mid afternoon on Sunday. 

I do not have an automatic turner.

Drinking water?

 

From what I understand Turkeys and Chicks will survive on the yolk for up to 48 hrs, UNLESS you let them have feed and or water -- from that point forward you will need to feed and water them.

 

So -- give em feed and water :)

Actually, the Florida White buck on a larger doe is a FABULOUS cross! While the FW's are smaller, the offspring get their size from Momma, and the tight, dense meat and light bone from papa making a very good meaty animal. We cross them with the Champagne D'Argent, and get a really fabulous meat rabbit. I've tried NZ's, Ca Whites and lots of others too, but the FW/Champagne X is very much like the Cornish X in chickens.  Lotsa bang for the buck! (pun intended)


Hey I will keep that in mind!! Thanks for the info!!  Well, ok, I was being nosy!!  LOL
