Hi Folks,
I can't believe it. I set 7 EE's and my first 5 bantum Turkens eggs this year. They all hatched as of this morning.


I must have been doing something right. This is my first 100% hatch. I've been in the upper 80's and lower 90's, but never hit the Mark.

Life is good

Info on what I did.
Nothing out of the ordinary. Kept my temp in the 99.5 range and the humidity for the first 18 days was around the 38-42% range. Then I put them in the hatcher the night of the 18th day. Humidity was about 67%
Usually, I put them in first thing the 18th day. but this time I decided to do something different as I was getting a couple that were fully formed, but died in the shell and never pipped. I don't know if they had to much humidity too soon or what.
Anyway, that's the story
