    me and my dad were talking it over, since my geese eggs were a failed 33 days of my incubating expertise,even with the help of MissPrissy. I will candle them one last time tonight and if I still see nothing tomorrow I will crack em open (out side) and get photos to get a diagnoses. any way since they did not hatch we were talking about how I could get more money to go toward future expansion/feed cost by taking advantage of all my fertile eggs. well we were thinking about just saving every single one from the fertile pen, and just incubating. and stagger it so that one batch comes out another goes in as soon as I can clean it. but the problem you see is this,I go to school five days a week and have many other things to do and in the past this was not a problem because mom or dad could turn. but since they are both now working I will not have someone always available to turn them. The max number of eggs I have ever tried to hatch was 18 it was hard, but back then I was home schooled and mom stayed home with us so that was not a problem. now though it is... I could use some home made auto turner plans. so I can make one to do all the turning for me.

    Yeah call em crazy too bad I have to call them family.

    I guess they do not want me hatching 50+ just yet besides it would probably take me a month or so to get that many.
