Turkey eggs vs. Duck and Goose Eggs

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

What is difference in size between Turkey, Duck and Goose eggs?  I am getting an incubator and was wondering if you could incubate Turkey eggs in a turner for either of the other eggs?

I just got a Hovabator 1588 with auto turner for goose eggs. They told me to use this for turkey eggs. I am wondering if I can also use it for chicken eggs.

I don't know about turkey eggs, but you can do duck eggs in a chicken turner.  A goose turner is simply too big.  I wouldn't try chicken or duck eggs in the goose turner.

I had heard that you could do Turkey eggs in Duck egg turners.  Someone is giving me an incubator and I don't know what it has but I want to try turkey eggs.  I guess I shall see what I get.
Thanks Heidi
