    My game birds are laying like mad, and what better to do than set some eggs from them?

    So, here's what I set...

    7 - Blue Slate Turkey eggs
    9 - Silver Spangled Grey
    5 - Hatch
    9 - Spangled white Clarets

    Set them just now after stalking my incubator for three days ( I am a little obsessive when I crank up for the first time.

    I have three thermometers set up in there, in three separate places / heights and go with the average temp. Been running steady so I went ahead and threw them in a few minutes ago!

    Anyone else setting today?
