    My wife and I have been hatching several types of eggs with mixed results.
    Our Bourbon Red Turkeys have had (what we feel as newbies) a good percentage rate. 85%-90%. Our Black Spanish however we have not been so lucky. We've had 5 of 20 hatch and 1 developed and pipped but died in the shell. Out of the 5 that hatched only 1 has lived. There all treated the same but the Black Spanish are problematic.

    If anyone has any suggestions we would appreciate it. We have 30 more in incubators now.
