Is anyone currently incubating Turkey eggs to sell?
My DF (who always says "no more chickens") was at Rural King today and said he thought about getting turkeys. Really only want two female and one male, but you can't tell with those and then he would've had to get three chicks as well. I told him to wait so I could check with you all. I have a couple chicks being hatched by a friend so I really didn't want more RK chicks!
Let me know if you're currently doing hatches and what breed. They will probably end up being dinner at some point, may try to hatch out some youngin's at some point.
Baby chicks in the house!!!! I woke up to two fully baked Bielies (one boy and one girl so far) and an olive egger (Bieliefelder/Isbar) dancing around on the other eggs. I have several more pips! Hatching in an incubator is so much cooler than broody hatching! I feel I am going to get very little done today!
Note, the boy Bielie has a piece of egg shell stuck to his head. LOL
I just read an article about the lady with the backyard flock that has Avian Influenza has chickens and ducks.
Also read, Diamond V poultry veterinarian, Dr Eric Gingerich, explained: “Turkeys can provide early warning of the spread of HPAI. It takes about 100 times more virus to infect chickens than turkeys.” source
Interesting! Thanks for sharing this.
