Hi from Northern California. I have approx. 12 chickens (3 roosters of different sizes), 14 ducks, (only time I know for sure who the females are is this time of year) 16 geese (ditto), six guinea fowl (ditto) and a couple a tom turkeys (semi-wild, they just showed up). All this on five acres. I'm collecting the eggs of all because my flocks are getting old and don't seem to be either fertile or able to hatch out chicks. And also because my puppy is eating what eggs he can find. (Going to put a muzzle on him). My neighbor gave me a brower 846, but no instructions, but it was working back in 1980, (he thinks, 90 yrs young!). So got it out just now, plugged it in, light came on, so now I wait. Any suggestions, comments, "aw shucks" moments would be appreciated. Thanks!
