    I won Miss Prissy's contest to "Guess when Cocoa will kid." She sent a HUGE box of eggs-Orpingtons, Silver Appleyard duck, and Bronze Turkey. I am down to 5 Orpingtons, 4 turkey, and 1 duck egg.
    Two of the Orps, I don't have much hope for, but I didn't trust myself enough to throw them out. Today is day 21, and look what I have! They are so cute! Thanks, Miss Prissy!

    Congrats. That is cool to use that metal silverware holder to separate eggs.

    The chicks figured out how to get over the sides pretty fast, but it works well! I also thought about using one of those wire desk organizers.

    I am sorry the hatch wasn't better. The PO must have been extremely hard on them. Sorry about the turkey egg. I hope this one hatches. I have turkeys and guineas hatching this morning. I put 40 more turkey eggs in the bator monday night. Ooops! LOL I hatched 12 of 14 ducks and they went to their new home within 12 hours of their hatch. I need another bator to hatch waterfowl.

    Homemade bator is awesome!
