 cheers The hatching tray is awash in baby turkeys.  Can't tell how many yet, but looks like a good hatch

Fifteen poults!  Pictures coming soon.  I'm so tickled! 

The next batch of turkey eggs (8) goes on lockdown 8/8 to hatch 8/12.   That will probably all for this year.

Five more poults from the last batch, so that makes 5 + 15 + 6 = a big 26!  I'll take some pictures tomorrow.

Dawn, you haven't mentioned your turkeys...........do you still have them or are they with your son? Lord, it'd be hard to have them there wouldn't it? I guess coons would get them too, wouldn't they?

Turkeys!!!!  25 eggs go on lockdown 5/4.  Probably hatch 5/8.  Since I put in that tray of eggs the hens have started laying seriously.  So I'll probably set some more soon -- maybe tomorrow.

I'm hoping to sell some poults.  I have seven hens laying and have started getting 5-7 eggs a day.  I'm hoping to set about three full trays of turkey eggs BOOM BOOM BOOM.  Then stop and re-evaluate.   Probably keep about 10-12 young for myself.   Maybe I'll let some hens sit on eggs later.
