    Hi all. I have been trying to get a heritage flock of turkeys going this summer and my first hatch only yielded 2 healthy toms. 1 BS and 1PP. I went to put the turkey eggs into the hatcher last night and the eggs were peeping and one was pipped. Imagine my surprise. I have 4 pips this AM. These are shipped eggs so I'd be thrilled with even 6-8 out of 24. Wish me luck.[​IMG]

    Two PP turkeys so far. One trying to climb out of its shell. Two more fully zipped. I more zipping and I think there might be 2 more pips. Hooray! I love it when a plan comes together.

    Congrats on the quail birdboy. Good luck.

    Will post pics once out of the bator.
