    Jeff sold me some eggs and I have 22 baby chicks out of the 27 put in. How that for hitching shipped eggs?
    If I can find the cord to use my camera, I will try and get some picture. Plus out of the scrambled turkey eggs, I saved six turkey eggs. Out of that six 4 hitched but one didn't make it. And the guy hitching for me opens the bator during the last five days with me saying DONOT DO THAT.
    Lordy,lordy I am hooked bad now I got chicks.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    My understanding is that thats an AWESOME hatch rate even if they hadn't been shipped. Good Job!

    Wow I'm thinking I should give my chickens extra treats tomorrow for laying such durable and fertile eggs. Cant wait to see pics. That is a very good hatch. Congrats on the new babies and you will have to name one of the roos Jeff for me, maybe the most muscular looking one. LOL
