I hate to have to point this out, but they won't have much meat on them by Easter
Lolz, my turkeys will hatch around Easter, so even less meat.
I hatched out some turkeys last year with the intention to butcher them in the fall. They all turned into pets except the tom who turned out mean. I have 3 hens now and they are just starting to lay. Turkey eggs make the BEST omelets and scrambled eggs. I will probably let the hens hatch out some chicken or duck eggs when they go broody.
Well it has been an exciting day! We have 6 new babies. All are under our Mama Blur. She is so happy and wouldn't even get up to eat today. 9 eggs still waiting, one has a pip hole. More waiting!!!
Day 11 update:
Out of 19 chocolate orpington eggs set (that traveled usps from California to Arkansas):
8 appear clear
6 have huge misshapen air cells. (I understand the term saddle-shaped very well now)
5 look great.
Weighed them all as well, and weight loss is right where it should be.
This is my 3rd time hatching, and my first time for shipped eggs. I knew it was risky getting shipped eggs.
Right now I am expecting that none of the clear eggs will hatch. I am also expecting at least 4 of the good ones will hatch.
As for the saddle shaped ones, I have no idea. Anyone here had experience in hatching shipped eggs that could give me an idea (roughly) of the odds of those eggs hatching?
Day 20 1/2 update!:
4 chicks out
So far I have two black chicks, 1 chipmunk chick and 1 yellow.
Do you have any pictures? We love pictures
