    Sorry, it's been a while since I visited this forum. Couldn't figure out why my password wasn't working. [​IMG]

    I don't see any hatch-along thread for August, is there any?

    I have bobwhite quail eggs in the Octo 20 incubator, that are due in two weeks, and would like to join if possible.

    I haven't seen a hatch-a-long in quite a few months. Not sure any have been going on.

    Debating if it is too hot to order eggs. I'm looking for any threads here that discuss this little issue. But, I suppose, by the time I recieved the eggs, it would be a September hatch. [​IMG]
    I want turkeys!! Hmmm, back to auctions... [​IMG]

    I always get my eggs locally. So far I've had no luck with shipped eggs no matter how hot the weather was. The quail eggs my husband bought on e-bay, I think, came half squished and the ones that made it in one piece never developed into anything. .... So I just stick locally so I can go pick them up myself. I had great success with all of these.

    I don't know about turkeys, but this late in a season we decided on quail because they grow very fast and are mature within a few months.

    these turkey eggs look like I went out and picked them up from our nests.. basically they look perfect.. no detached air cells.. no scrambled eggs.. I was amazed.. now hopefully they didnt get too hot in transit and hopefully they are fertile... so I'm gonna keep my fingers crossed that i have a really good hatch from them

    in all honesty.. with as hot as it has been.. I really expected them to be in horrible shape... needless to say I was pleasantly surprised!
