    I have one more day for two incubated turkey eggs and I cant stop looking at them! I was wondering if turkey chicks will peep in their eggs as often as chicks do? Im looking for some kind of sign that they are in there [​IMG] Rolling, peeping, swearing, anything?

    I am on Day 27 of 2 from my birds! Yeah it is hard to wait but once you see those adorable babies with their HUGE eyes, you will forget all about the wait! [​IMG]

    I think Im just really nervous because these two were under a bantam brahma until 2 days ago. She got off of them (for maybe no more than a few hours) and they were pretty darn cold when I found them. Thankfully, I had the incubator still going from our chicks hatching a couple of days before so I was able to stick them in there. I kept them in my room for a bit to get to room temp and then put them in the incubator. I hope they made it. This is nerve wracking!

    And STEVE wants me to wait?! [​IMG]

    LOL, I'm on day 18 of chicken eggs and favoritekitty, I understand how you would love to crack open a shell just to see whats inside- just like a Christmas present!
    I've got turkey eggs next and that is another whole week added on- not sure I can deal with it!

    Good luck and I can't wait to hear whats in your "present"!!!

    I'm on day 20 with some of Steve's eggs so I feel your pain. This is agonizing.

    Why, of course! You told me that was the magic ingredient to make them come out of their shells!
