Hatching turkey eggs NEED HELP!!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone, I have my incubator full of bronze turkey eggs. I am about a week into incubation. I am just realizing that I put all the eggs in pointy side up! From what I am reading, I should have put them all pointy side down. What should I do now? What will happen if I flip them all the other way now? I have them in an automatic turner as well. Is it too late? OMG! What to do?

I am just learning to hatch myself, but I just hatched out some chicks and I made the same mistake in the very beginning but I just gently turn them around because it was in the early stage. they all still hatch. So my suggestion is to gently turn them around point side down and candle and on 7 to 10th day to see how they look.
I now have Turkey and duck eggs in the incubator can't wait for the 28th day.

Turn them over right and try not to worry too much. Do your candle in a few days and see where they are.
