We are off to the races. With 600 turkey poults hatched already!

First, there were many, many days of egg collecting, washing and placing in incubators.

Then coming in at night and inspecting the eggs.

Candling them for viability.

Refilling the humidifier for the perfect conditions.

And doing some high math to calculate the birds coming in the next several weeks.

It is a lot of birds! But it is always amazing to see them hatch out, one at a time…

Then off to the warming room they go to grow and get ready for life on the outside.
