    [​IMG] So glad you joined. I'm a crazy chicken lady, can't help with the question. Suggest you post it also under turkeys forum.

    Good luck.

    Welcome to BYC![​IMG] We're glad to have you.

    I've never personally incubated Turkey eggs, so I can't be of much help. But, if you post in the Turkeys section you may get some good answers:Turkeys

    You may also want to post in the Incubating and Hatching section, if you have any problems:Incubating & Hatching Eggs

    Good luck with the incubation![​IMG]

    I would definitely check out the Turkey section of the forums.

    Good luck with the incubation!

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about turkeys (never had any), but I would definitely suggest posting on the turkey link that Wyandottes7 provided and take advantage of our turkey experts there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your hatch.

    After hatch, some people put some chicks with the turkeys to serve as tutors. The chicks show them where food and water is etc. [​IMG]
