After resolving that I wouldn't hatch anything this year, a friend of mine has convinced me to hatch some button quail for her. When my mom discovered I had turned on my incubator, she began to ask if I was going to set turkey eggs. I assured her I was not, and she (who had forbidden the hatching until I moved) told me that I should. A week before this, someone offered me the exact peafowl eggs I had been hoping to find for next year... but I figure, as long as I'm turning on the incubator anyway... Well, we'll just hope no one realizes there are peachicks in with those turkeys! EDIT: Even got PERMISSION and a friend volunteered to help me out with the placement of the chicks and adults so that I can keep them!
So the button quail eggs I already have I am going to set late tonight (the incubator temps are still leveling out) or tomorrow morning. They are an 18 day hatch for me, so even if you've already set eggs feel free to join in!
The peafowl eggs should be shipping late, maybe not until July, and the turkey eggs will go in when they arrive (they'll be from my own turkeys, so I can grab them any time). The peas and I think turkeys are on a 28 day hatch, so even if you join the thread late you can still wait with me!
EDIT: Still haven't had the pea eggs shipped, but I believe it will happen this week (7/1). So if you're late coming to the thread, feel free to hop in and join! We'll still be hatching for another month XD
