Out of 10 eggs, I now have 2 beautiful white turkey poults! They are so cute and have such huge feet. One I thought was dead (my only wild turkey egg), and I didn't know about the float test so cracked it 1-2 weeks ago cause I wnted to know what was wrong...and it was alive. I felt so bad. The remaining 4 were whites, one hatched a day early yesterday and had hatching issues and was my first cull when his innards fell out. Tht left 3 eggs, one of which hadn't moved in days and was dead. The last 2 have hatched, and are beautiful. I cried so hard last night. The poult was obviously in pain, and getting worse by the minute. I had heard about putting small animals down by putting them in a plastic bag and using the car exhaust. Let me tell you....it is NOT a kind way and I will never ever try it again. I actully stopped and got the shovel. I know I had to do it for his sake, but man it was hard. My husband has asked me to stop trying to hatch becuse it makes me too emotional, and told me if it happens again to let him deal with it. I was afraid him dealing with it would mean throwing it into the woods alive.
