Well, my turner broke, so I hand turned for 24 hours, then got a new turner put in and turning lol. When I switched the eggs, one was stuck in the turner...found it was leaking, and when I got it out it left a piece of shell behind, so I tossed it.
This is the week the BR turkeys I set with the chickens are due. The bator ran cold a few days so I'm figuring on a delayed hatch if at all. It's both the hens' and the tom's first season, though I think I see movement this is only my second incubation.
At least this time it's my own eggs I'm setting and not bought eggs.
Hey shanay, what sort of goose is that in your avatar, it sure is pretty. You guys are making me jealous....geese, turkeys lol. It was a 2 year struggled to talk DH into letting me get ducks.
What sort of incubator you use walks with dog? I've been trying to adjust my old still air hovabtor and it's been giving me fits lol. Runs 101-102 through the day, but plummets down to 96 at night here. Grrr. Now that I got used to my Genesis, I dont know how I ever functioned with that old one.
That's a Sebastopol goose, the same type I have in my bator right now. They really are beautiful. There are a few Sebbie breeders here on the forum who have posted pics of their geese. The three colored Seb eggs in my bator came from fellow BYC member "bator".
