Well. I candled.....The mailed eggs appear to have 3 maybe 4 that developed. I admit I did a fast candle because I had the doors open too long. They are set to hatch on the 18th.
I had a "mess" of eggs to hatch on the 13th. I have 13 I put into the hatcher. The rest are going in the garbage. All non-starters except one I think is a late quitter but too hard to tell so he is in the hatcher. Another in the hatcher is a side saddle air sac. I just laid it on the bottom of the hatcher, not in a carton I have no Little hope for it.
My young Blues appear to be worthless. Either that or they spent so much time fighting through the fences they forgot to mate. Dumbchisssskis!
Every egg in the hatcher is a JJ egg! He only had 3 girls them too, so he had a lower percentage of girls and got all the eggs! JJ is a bird to behold! He has knobby feet, I hope the bet tomorrow does not make a big deal about them. He has always had them. Well, as long as I have had him, but he came from such harsh conditions he is lucky to still have feet.
So I have 27 different kinds of birds that can hatch on the 13th!
Oh did I mention, I think some have already internally pipped, I can see the birds moving around in the air sacs! Or right below it. They did not seem to like the light shined in their homes!
My first turkeys of the year are so exciting! I wish they had not been so many blanks,,,,I did not think to candle any of the other two boys other eggs.
