You know, when I bought my Dickey cabinet incubator two years ago I chose the smaller 2x2 model because I could not conceive of ever actually filling the thing. And until this spring I didn't. But I wanted some new blood for my turkey breeding so I ordered in some eggs. He had some nice looking clean legged Cuckoo Marans so I ordered some of those too. And some Standard Bronze eggs (they're coming in a couple of weeks) But that only amounted to a little more than half a tray. But my turkeys finally started to lay so I put in twenty five of theirs as well. Turkey eggs take up the space of two chicken eggs with the holders I'm using. Now I'm a hair over one tray full. Then the folks at the county fair asked if I'd do a hatching display for them. Need to hatch over a four day period and it's going to be in an outdoors tent. Better make sure I'm going to have enough ready-to-hatch on Day 19 and some backups in case something goes wrong at the fair grounds. So we set eighty one and filled the bottom tray. The dang thing is full! But the fair was last weekend and the shipped turkey and Maran eggs hatched a week ago so that emptied things out quite a bit. Which was a good thing because I had two flats of turkey eggs in the refrigerator that had been waiting. Last Saturday we set fifty five to go with the twenty five that were already in there that are due to start hatching along about Friday. Now it's back to full again. It runs more efficiently when it's full, don'tcha know? The wife is starting to give me the look. You know the one that all "not with it" spouses give you when they're beginning to think you've gone over the edge... Could be worse I suppose. I could be hanging out in bars chasing the college girls. At least this way I'm home nights. Watching the turning trays go this way then that way and patiently logging the time/date/temperature/humidity data in the chart on the refrigerator. It's a good lesson for the kids in devotion and attention to detail! "Don't worry, darlin'! The feed bill will come down when I sell this lot at the swaps..." So, whose incubators are full?
