    Just finishing out my last hatching for a few months (maybe). My last few hatches were of
    guineas, and 4 Black Spanish Turkeys. On the turkeys I started out with 18 eggs and 7 of those
    developed. Out of the 7 I had 3 which died while pipping. I had to be gone to the Dr. when they decided to hatch a few days early
    and was not there to help them out. The 4 that survived are doing great.
    I also hatched out a mixture of Dominiques, and a few giant cochins, 6 golden buff bantam cochins, and 1 frizzle. The chicks in the picture have plenty of room but they were kinda camera shy and all of the ran and piled in the corner of the brooder when I went to take the picture. Also I am not the worlds best at taking picture but do like taking pictures of my chickens and other birds.

    Thanks for the nice comments. I was really fortunate on the guineas.
    I incubated 41 eggs and had 38 hatch. Then my female guineas was setting
    on 19 of her eggs and after about 2 1/2 weeks I stole them from her and finished
    incubating them in the incubator so that I would have no problem getting the
    keets when they hatched. 18 of her 19 hatched.
