    I will be incubating 4 Bourbon Red eggs starting this next weekso doing some research and wondering about other peoples experiences with them? If ( fingers crossed!) these do hatch they will be more pets than anything else. :)

    I am actually hatching Narragansett turkeys now. Due on the 6th and 7th. It's exciting to see them hatch. It's not hard to hatch. Just be careful not to touch the eggs to much. Definitely keep moisture high as turkeys need it to help them hatch. I have had pretty good luck with them. I just love them so much. Turkeys make better guard animals than dogs sometimes. Congrats and hope it works out. Be sure and post pics when they come out!!!

    Yes, I incubated turkeys for my cousin last year so happy to be incubating some for me lol. I have goose eggs and one duck egg due on the 8th. Before that I was incubating eggs from my Icelandics. I am addicted. :) But I love how personable the turkeys are. :)

    It sounds silly but I like to talk to them. We have no idea what we're saying to each other but they are very personable!!!
