28 days to turkey

Merrill Family Farm is pleased to announce our new arrival/project.

We’re incubating turkey eggs!!!

A friend (thank you, Meredith!!) provided us a total of 27 (hopefully) fertilized turkey eggs, and since we’ve got a borrowed incubator (thank you, Alan), we’re trying our hand at hatching things.

It takes 28 days for turkeys to go from egg to chick.  I’ll be documenting and passing info along.  If it’s a success, we’ll have a bunch of little turkeys running around.  If it’s a flop, you, my dear readers, will feel the pain and loss along with me.

Stay tuned for progress and updates!!
