This batch of 10 turkey eggs, 4 were not fertilized. So of the 6 potential good ones, 2 decided to hatch on day 26.
Only one egg didn't pip yet.
Super EXCITED.

*first turkey that hatched had splayed legs. Hoping with some TLC he'll make it.

Sometimes you can put it in a deep coffee mug that has some paper towel in the bottom of it. After an hour or two of trying to climb out of the mug, the poult may have built up enough muscles to keep his legs in position. The mug should be close enough to the heat lamp to keep the poult warm, but not so close as to bake it. My mug was too tall to fit in my incubator, but that would be the ideal place for it.
