After an expensive and disasterous attempt to hatch turkeys from shipped eggs last year, I'm looking for any advice anyone has. I've been told by one person that it's almost impossible to successfully hatch shipped eggs due to x-rays used by the post office. Should we ask for UPS or FedEx shipping? Last year out of two separate batches with a total of 40 eggs - we got ONE success. We are driving some distance to obtain some poults this year from the place we bought the one successful shipped egg , but would really like to obtain eggs from different flocks to broaden the bloodline. We "rested" the eggs for 12 hours, kept close watch on the temp and humidity with two thermometers, and had very poor luck. We have a hovabator with fan that seems to hatch chicks with almost no troubles at all. Would appreciate any ideas. Thanks!
