Continuous Incubation of Turkey Eggs?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

What is the best way to have a continuous incubation of turkey eggs? i.e., such that I put eggs in the incubator as they are hatched so all the eggs in the incubator would be at different points.

Is there a way this can be done with success? If so, what should the constant humidity/temperature be?

staggered hatches work best if you have a separate hatcher, i have both a large cabinet hatcher and a Hova-bator i use as a hatcher depending on the size of the hatch.   i mark the set date on top of the eggs and mark the calendar to know what eggs go into the hatcher on what day.  

 

if you don't have a dedicated hatcher i've had very good hatch rates with 60% humidity and hatching in the incubator.  the major draw back of this is it's VERY difficult to clean and disinfect the incubator between hatches.
