    I am setting 6 sweetgrass Turkey eggs from p/shall tonight. I have never hatched Turkeys before and would love a hatch buddy. I had 15 Turkey eggs from a friend in the bator but only one 1 is fetile. Hopefully I will do better with these great eggs. Anyone?

    I won't be setting the next batch til next week wed. but my first hatch is in the brooder. You are going to love turkey poults.

    I also have some at amazondoc's that should hatch in the next 14 days or so. They're 12 bourbon reds and a 14 Calico eggs I got on ebay. Needless to say I'm building bigger turkey pens and coops.

    BEST of LUCK!

    close enough to be your hatchin' buddy? [​IMG]

    They are Bourbon red, royal palm and whitexBR. I just had 4 hatch
    last Saturday and 1 little guy came out with a 3rd foot so I'm hoping
    this time that I don't get any surprises!!

    I had four Midget Whites hatch today at a friend's house. I go to pick them up tomorrow! I have ten Bourbon Reds set a week ago or so... Hopefully some of those will hatch as well.

    Is that close to being a hatch buddy? I might even be able to discover the secret lair of my digi cam by then....

    anyone else starting to realize how slow these 27 days are going to be. I have a hard time with 21 day. Maybe I need to switch to hatching quail.
