    Just wanted to tell everyone about my new poults. I bought one of the Genesis incubators. I have done chicks before and these were my first turkeys.
    I put in 18 eggs and got 18 poults. I was so exicited when they started to pip. All babies are doing fine. Showing a strong desire to eat and drink. I was a little worried about that.[​IMG]

    You must have done something right! Great hatch!
    Were your eggs shipped?

    I had the tom and hens. Another hen is sitting on five eggs. We'll see how well she does.

    Thanks for the comments everyone. I deceided to feed them crumbles with a little water to wet it down. They love it. All the babies come to eat. It was a real good way to get them all started. I read that somewhere on BYC. Great advice.[​IMG]

    Well the poults made it past the first few days. Everyone is eating and drinking fine. The wing feathers are growing so fast. I will be finding homes for them soon. How much do you guys think is a good price to ask for them? Any suggestions?
