    Welcome to the hatch-a-long! Glad you have you joining us.

    I just saw my favorite chicken, Grandma, on the nest today so I am hoping she starts laying eggs. Would love to hatch some of her chicks to celebrate her 3rd birthday.

    My first batch of turkey eggs went in the 22nd, so I'm going to have to build another incubator to do it, but... well, I needed to anyway...
    Count me in with turkeys & chickens!

    Doesn't everyone NEED another incubator? [​IMG]

    Thanks for joining us. If you happen to take pictures of the incubator I always like seeing what people come up with!

    My Muscovy hens are just starting to sit their eggs. Now if the turkey hens go broody next week, they will all be right on time for the Cinco de mayo hatch.

    Finally have a couple days off of work! Added people to the list and started collecting my eggs.

    Planning to save eggs from my White Leghorn for 14 days, the longest I have ever attempted to store hatching eggs then the last 5-7 days I will be collecting big blue eggs to hatch along with them. Guessing I will set somewhere between 24 and 36 eggs.
