    Bummer on the bad candling, maybe they will spring to live this week.

    I have turkey eggs pipped and wiggling, fingers crossed I get a hatch.

    I put my toads, turkeys and creamettes into the tractor today I put in 2 weeks worth of hatches, a miserable rate of hatch., 20 birds for 2 hatches.


    The youngest into the tractor were hatched Saturday. I tried to bond a broody EE to them, I failed miserably. Oh Well. I have a heat light in the brooder part of the tractor. I have it on a water heater thermostat. I was surprised it does not hold a more constant temp, it comes on at 96 and goes off at 110. Which while high is just fine for an outdoor box. The chicks will move away from the heat as needed.

    The toads are so active for 5 day od chicks, they were outside chasing the 2 week od turkeys, drinking water and scratching.


    The creamettes are just relaxing under the sun lamp getting a tan, not a one of them went outside.

    Thanks! Those accidents that somehow screw up everything up! I certainly hope the weather warms up soon, my New Hampshires pullets are going to be about ten weeks, so I can put them in with my other flock.

    ...and sometimes I type two capital letters in a row. I have no excuse though. [​IMG]

    edited because I did not learn the difference between to, two, and too...apparently. Got it right now.
