    When they say "Test" they mean try some of your eggs in there incubator and see how fertile they are like test the hatch rate

    I'd be happy to send you some from my Narragansetts. I can't be hatching any turkey poults right now, but I'm dying to know how they hatch. Email me your contact info at ninjapoodlesATgmailDOTcom.

    That is cool but not a reliable way to test fertility. From my own experience with shipped eggs the hatch rate is much lower than when hatching my own eggs. I don't feel like fertility has near as much impact as the rough handling the eggs are subjected to during shipping.

    Quote:True, but it is a good way to see how your shipped eggs hatch, without having to worry about a 'buyer' being gripey about bad eggs. [​IMG]
