    I haven't seen the NYE hatch along yet, so maybe they aren't doing it this year? Either way, I put 9 royal palm turkey eggs and about a dozen of my own duck eggs in the incubator on Sunday. I am excited! The duck eggs are the first of my own eggs I have ever tried. Anyone else set for a December hatch date?

    We hatch Dec 2, or thereabouts, so I have a foot in the Nov.hatch along, but technically December birthdays for my 14 shipped BCM and 5 homegrown crosses (hoping for olive eggers)! Here's what our incubation station looks like today![​IMG]

    Thanks! We candled last night and of the 14 shipped BCM eggs (we started with 16, 2 quit early) there were 2 more quitters and 1 I couldn't quite discern, so left it in. Being that I only paid for a dozen, I'm still feeling pretty good about them. Of course the critical time is coming up, when all of those slightly wonky air sacks will come into play. With our own eggs, we're 5/5, which is great because they're from both an untested rooster and hen!
