    I promised you guys a video of the peachicks crying! I took this tonight when I stepped out of the room. The quality is horrible because it was on my phone but just listen to the non-stop crying! They cry like this every time I'm not in front of them, until I pick them up at night, wrap them in a blanket and pet their heads till they fall asleep!!

    If its tough to adjust, I'd just leave it. Just remember if they are a day late, it wont be surprising. Better in my opinion to keep it a tad low than risk getting it too high.

    there is nothing wrong with shipping eggs if the seller is a good shipper pay attention to the feedback ratings you know read them. a lot of people give shipped eggs a bad rep. when a lot of the time it's a bad incubator and or a bad hatcher. I've always read expect a 50% hatch rate from shipped eggs weather ebay eggs or from a major hatchery and most ebay sellers send extra and the're insured if they show up broke file a claim with the carrier other thing ebay sellers don't like negative feed back don' be afraid to leave one . ebay's 30 day money back policy starts when you pay for what you brought not when you receive it.

    I bet that they'd do well growing up with turkeys. Especially if you had a poult just a week or so older to act as a "parent figure".
