    I just candled my turkey eggs due this weekend. From that and the space at the bottom of the egg, I'd figure Sunday and not before. Close, so close. [​IMG]

    I'm sorry about your eggs. DS's and DD's appear to do that with alarming regularity.

    Glad mine's 25. I really hope you get some of them to hatch. Prayers from here.

    Yep I have 19 eggs left in the LG. I had 41 eggs in there to start with, but due to some difficulty keeping the temp stable a lot of the chicks died early on. I did finally get the temp stabled, after spikes of up to 106*F and then the temps falling down to 92*F. I am truly surprised that any of them are still alive. I have 11 Barred Rocks and 8 of my own left. Thankfully these weren't expensive eggs! Mine are just mutts and the BR eggs were pretty cheap. So now I just have to wait! Then I have another bunch of eggs in a Hovabator due next weekend. 2 dozen of Siz's assorted eggs, and some more of my mutt chicken's eggs. They are all growing well, so far I have only had to throw 3 of the shipped eggs, 2 were cracked and clear and the third had never started developing. Several of the shipped eggs have some pretty messed up air cells, but they are still developing so I am going to leave them in there and hope for the best. Good luck to all those hatching this weekend! This is so fun!
