This week ...

This week should be the week we hatch our first turkey poults. I'll have to stop turning two of them after tomorrow. We've been candling them about once a week. In fact we candled several yesterday because Alex was over. It was quite funny with Chris, Alex and I squeezed into the closet looking at the chicks in the eggs. We were hoping they'd be moving like they were the other day, but no luck. It was disappointing. Kellie got to see the chicks moving in their yolks, but not Alex. We have his mom's incubator right now, and I'll be putting the eggs that aren't ready to hatch in that incubator while I put the hatching ones in our incubator. That way I'm not making a mess of Alex's mom's incubator.
