In the Brooder
- May 1, 2011
lockdown was Wednesday a.m. i filled up all 4 channels in the brinsea 20 with water and checked the vent is only open 1/3rd. i have 9 turkey eggs in there (only turkeys). Yesterday i'd read somewhere on here about for hatching turkeys, to drop the heat a little bit at lockdown. The brinsea's been at 37.6 consistent so last nite i lowered temp just a bit to 37.4 - now, this is entirely my fault - i didn't dbl-check b4 going to bed, and my adjustment was actually too severe, 1st thing this a.m. i notice the temp is parked at 37.2...oh no!! also maybe for turkeys it's too soon but there are zero pips which worries me. Do you think i killed my hatch or should i calm down? this is my 1st time putting turkey eggs in the brinsea. They were set April 30th so i had assumed Wed 25th was lockdown and i ought to be having pips by now, today the 27th. Ohhhh, misery!
