Everything sounding good so far?
Yep. Now just wait for the veins to start to absorb. It's a lot easier to wait once you can see in there and know everythings going ok, lol. Make sure the humidity stays cranked up.
I had to turn the other eggs in my incubator and add water so I went ahead and candled my lockdown turkey eggs. 4 internal pips so far. Really hoping turkeys don't drag things out like ducks. 4+ poults in the morning would be fantastic.
It's chilly out tonight, so I brought all the little babies inside, except the chicks with the broodies. Other silkie has also decided she wants to mother the chicks too, so the 6 EE's have 3 mommas which I imagine should keep them perfectly warm. Doesn't bother me too much now, but I hope at least one gives up soon. My roo has been getting better at his technique and I'd like to hatch some of my own babies.
