    Thank you!

    Me too. It seems like I am broody busting every day. I just don't have the space to give them all eggs. They would be fighting all the time and the eggs would never make it.

    May 2nd update: of the 3 living eggs I had leftover from my April hatch all 3 hatched yesterday..

    now on to disinfecting the incubator and getting ready for my Cinco De Mayo 5 heritage turkey eggs from a friend

    (and picking up my farm store order on th/fri of 2 ducks/2 turkeys (christmas and thanksgiving are their names LOL) and 5 female chicks.


    Then I am on hold for new chicks until May 14th when my turkey and runner ducks from the 24 hour crazy auction are due to hatch (and it is the day I FINALLY graduate from college at almost 52 years old LOL)... I am hoping they don't all hatch while I am gone that day as I want to see some ducks hatch.

    Then to be continued as the month goes on...[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I'm glad you got a couple of pips!

    If the temp is off I would contact them.

    Get some!

    Day 14 candle last night. Air cells on my remaining marsh Daisy eggs air aweful. Those'll go into a hatcher upright in a carton. Can I use the cardboard egg cartons in a really humid environment? Still think 1/4 of those is a quitter but no clear sign so it stays until lockdown. Peeked at the new ones, but it hasn't been long enough to see anything yet. Will have to wait until day 7 for them. Think yesterday was only day 3. All my remaining Isbar eggs look good though.
