    I have 7 Turken/Naked Necks and 33 Buckeye X NHRs due on the 25th. I am running dry incubtion like last time and am going to hatch upright again. Last time I had 100% hatch!!! All the chicks are alive and well. When they hatched out last time I would take them out and cover their little heads and sprayed their navels with peroxide then alcohol. No mushy belly chicks!!! Today I get 24 eggs from a lady who has Orphs...Im excited to put them in but am a bit concerned and wonder if I should clean these eggs since they are not from my birds.
