    What a crappy morning. A turkey hatched last night and the egg sack was huge. During it's thrashing around it's toes ripped it open and it bled all night,what a mess . Poor thing was still hanging in there this morning but was clearly not going to make it. I couldn't let it linger for the day in pain. I gassed it with the car exhaust in a bag. Broke my heart but I couldn't think of how else. I hope I don't have to ever do this again but I'm sure it will happen at some point. SO how was your morning?

    Sorry for the bad morning. Just remember that it usually works. In fact, what's amazing is how often hatching goes OK.
