    I was told that turkey eggs are different from chicken eggs..
    From reading Porter's guide to hatching turkey eggs, I noticed that he mentions using a styrofoam incubator. I do have one but I have a better brinsea mini advance that gives me good hatches, the other one doesn't do me much good.. I haven't used it in a while.
    If I can use my mini advance what do I do about humidity?

    Turkey eggs take 28 days, instead of 21. As long as they fit, and you can turn them, I don't see why you can't.

    I run chicken and turkey eggs in the same incubator, on the same settings, just giving the turks an extra week. I have hatched them from my sportsman, as well as my mini-3.
