incubating turkey and quail together

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Would it be safe if i incubated turkey eggs and bobwhite quail eggs together at the same time? I've heard stories about blackhead killing eggs. thanks

Blackhead is not a problem in incubation, only later when the turkeys go outside onto soil.

I don't think it will be a problem incubating them together, the only issue I can think of is if the RH needs to be different to get the correct amount of water loss during incubation.
