Wondering if we could get some help with some turkey eggs. We were out bush-hogging today and ran over a wild nest; broke 3 eggs, 8 are still intact. The female took off and we haven't seen her since. It's suppose to get cold here so we didn't want to leave them lay to freeze or for something to eat them. In the broke ones there was one that you could make out a head and eyes so we figure they're further along. We have chickens that we've raised from day olds but we haven't incubated any. I see that we can get an incubator at TSC but I don't know what to do in the mean time and if they'll still be hatch out by the time we get one.
If we get a incubator by tomorrow evening and get them in it will they hatch?
Do I need to clean the dried yoke off the eggs? What is the best way?
How can we keep them warm enough until I can get to town and get an incubator?
Any other tips to doing this?
We are hoping we can get them raised and get them back out to roam the fields like the others around here.
Thanks for you help in advance!!!
