    After the whole hoopala with my disgruntled shipper over my payment method I did get his turkey eggs. A day later than he was supposed to ship them (big deal right?) I put 8 in the bator. Well I candled last night and 2 have cracks in them. Now this guy bubble wrapped them, but the cracks could not have happened in shipping... they were double boxed and surrounded with paper. The rest look to be broken air sacs! What a waste of money...

    THANK GOODNESS a fellow BYC member met me and gave me a few turkey eggs because it looks like those are the only ones that are going to hatch if they make it the 28 days without me killing them!

    I saw veins in them last night (day 5) in at least 4 of them. I'll wait a few more days and candle again to see if the others are developing.

    Well, getting ripped off is not fun; have you tried to contact him? Good luck with the eggs you have
