    Today is Day 27 on my 4 Turkey eggs I am hatching, 2 pipped yesterday and they are talking away, I think they are talking to me, but they may be talking to each other.

    Day 19 on my Cochin and one Houdan egg from Terry (Scbirdfarm)

    Of course I am working today and worried about them. Turkeys are a lot louder than chicks in the eggs. [​IMG]
    I have a brooder set up for them already and another will get set up tonight for the cochins and my poor little houdan.

    Is it harder to hatch turkey eggs? I am thinking about getting some this spring.

    sounds like you will have babies tomorrow! to answer shellyds question. Turkey eggs are not hard to hatch, its after they hatch is the tricky part, poults can be very fragile.

    Go TURKEYS! I'll be happy to get even one of the turkeys to hatch. But you give me hope.

    I'm hoping the sound of the 25 partridge rocks peeping in the kitchen will motivate the entire incubator full of eggs.

    OMG how many birds??? Let's hope this batch of PRs has some pullets in it. Sigh.
