    I think my eggs died. I had broody hens setting on them but they stinkies! [​IMG]
    Time to put my bator to good use. I need somemore.
    My Hubby is heartsick. He really really wanted some royal palms. They were due this Friday. [​IMG]

    Did you ever get any royal Palm eggs? I gave up after two bad batches of shipped eggs and bought eight 1 month old poults. I would advise you to shy away from shipped eggs especially if they are shipped by air.

    Quote:Yes...Unfortunately only 1 egg hatched. And the only reason he/she is doing alright right now is because I went outside and snatched up some 3/5 day old chicks to babysit. Now (because of the chicks) "Wishbone" eats and drinks on his own. I know that he could still die. So I am on him like a mother hen! I sure do hope he makes it.
    Since then I put 27 buff and white orpington eggs in the bator. They will be due on or around the 19th of July. Only after that will I make another attempt at hatching some more turkeys.
