    Went in to lockdown with 5 turkey eggs today. They are rocking pretty good tonight... hoping for the best.

    Tomorrow is hatch day, was hoping to see some pips today..... : ( nothing yet. Still rocking, so maybe they are just waiting for that perfect moment. They are in my classroom and the temperature in the room is way to hot... should be around 70... hope it hasn't hampered with the process.
