Turkey Wrassling!!! My favorite spectator sport!
BRB... Need to get some popcorn...
Ok,,,, Back, Go for it~
That is going to be so much fun to watch!
BTW,, this reminds me Coffee called me today. Her hen is about 2 days from hatching. She was a little worried because the hen has only gotten off the nest once in the last 4 weeks. She says she cannot get close to the nest, the hen flattens out puffs up and hisses at Coffee..
I told her she got lucky to have a young hen that is that determined to sit it out.
The other hen had a nest hid in the woods, she found the nest and stole the eggs. She wants to wait until the other hen is done before she allows the second to have eggs. The other thing is, she confessed she likes turkey eggs better than chicken eggs....So she took them...
She says to say hi to everyone, She does not have decent internet where she lives. Hopefully, she will get internet by landline in the next year. Not everyplace around here has good internet. The phone company stopped accepting applications for the internet because the infrastructure can not handle it..
R2elk,,, thanks so much for telling me to put glass in the door.
I cut in some 3 1/2 inch holes and covered them with glass. I will be able to watch the hatch without having to open the doors. The temps are holding steady at 100. so I am a happy guy. I hope this hatch goes well..
I also used distilled water like you said.
I want a 100% hatch. But I have a couple side saddle air sacs, so that will not happen....dang!
Coffee is so funny, Judy and I get a kick out of her. She so loves her birds, she got two Creamers from me earlier this spring one has started to crow and has become a ladies man. I told her if that is the case she is going to have little chicks coming out of the woods all summer long.
Also I forgot to mention she did not want the other hen to have eggs now, because Porter gets lonely and calls for her and cries when he is alone....BTW she plans to keep all the babies!
