    I just had to tell someone. I have turkeys and quail in the hatching tray and so far 1 of each !!!!! It's my first quail hatch and I can't believe how tiny it is. Especially compared to the Bourbon Red Poult.
    I have to go to a dinner tonight and can't sit home and peek at them. I am so excited !!!!

    Sounds like fun! That would be quite a size difference you're seeing!

    I peeked a little while ago and out of 11 turkey eggs I have 8 hatched 1 zipped and 2 nothing. I can only see 1 quail so I'm not sure of those.

    Ok I will do pictures later when I take them out. I have more to go in the hatcher later. They are cuckoo marans and I think olive eggers and some barnyard mix. Can't remember right now. lol
