There were 14 eggs, 9 hatched. 7 look like Naragansett and 2 Royal Palm. 1 egg disappeared and we brought the remaining 4 inside and put them in the incubator because it seemed Dot was done sitting on them. We candled them and all have babies in them. 1 in the incubator just pipped. I'm nervous about it because the turner is in there for our other eggs that we just set on the 7th. Guess I'll be up all night watching.
Not sure where the one egg went...maybe she pushed it under the hay in the nest? Maybe I'll find out when I am able to clean her nest.
Dot was bred by an Eastern Wild turkey by accident the day we went to purchase her. Then our Royal Palm tom mated her as well. We were not sure what we were going to get.
Someone told me 50% Bronze and 50% Naragansette, if she were only bred by the wild turkey. I don't know what bronze chicks look like...but these ones look like Naragansett and RP to me.
Things turn out best for people who make the best of the way things turn out.
