    Here goes nothing! Home-built incubator, I put 10 Turkey eggs and 20 Quail eggs in the bator. They are separated so I can get the quail out when they hatch without pestering the turkey eggs. I can't wait for the turkeys, they are royal palms and it was so expensive to buy poults that I got eggs instead. I don't know how I am going to make it through the next 28 days until/if they hatch. The suspense is killing me. I wish I could set up a web came so that I can watch my thermometer from work! Friday I have a dozen Delaware eggs arriving and they will go into home-made bator number 2 so that I will have some chicks to teach my goofy turkey poults how to eat (I had poults that took awhile to figure this out)
