    Ok first time hatching turkeys and I have a PIP! [​IMG]

    So when they hatch and I am also hatching chickens, can they be put together?
    I do have 2 brooders if need be.

    Yea so excited!

    Anything else I need to know about turkeys? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I just had 6 blue slate turkey's hatch and I have mine in with 2 ducks that hatched at the same time and a blue back pheasant chick. They all snuggle up together it's so cute.

    Ok sounds good!

    I am excited, yet the turkey chick has done nothing else. I have had the pip since last night. I hope the baby is ok. [​IMG]

    Thank goodness I have two brooders cause in the other incubator I have silkes and frizzles and EE eggs and there are way to many to cound and all hatching at once! akkkkkkkkkk!! [​IMG]

    I don't know what happen with mine because I always write the date they go in the bator on each egg. Well my turkeys hatched on day 25/26. Plus the cayuga eggs I had in the other bator hatched on day 25 too. When I went to take them out of the turner most of them had pipped already. It was weird that 2 different hatches hatched 3 days early.
