    I have never candled a turkey egg but found this site that might be helpful.

    ucanr.org/freepubs/docs/8134.pdf

    Also you could go to the BYC search box and type in candling turkey eggs and find several posts that will be very helpful.

    GOOD LUCK [​IMG]

    I have attempted to get candling pics of turkeys eggs but the results have not been good. If a person had a really high tech camera with very low light settings maybe.

    4 days is to early IMO. I seem to do better about 7 days.

    I candled at day 10. Here are a couple pics of the same egg to show movement. Here is a pic taken a few minutes ago at day 16. You can see that there is much more development and that the mass in the lower end of the egg is much less transparent. At day 10 I could see a lot of development. Tonight I saw a leg kick...wish I could have gotten that in a pic.
