    So my guinea fowl is currently at day 24 tomorrow is the day i remove the egg tray but the problem is there are two type of eggs in the incubator..
    1. Guinea is in day 24
    2. Turkey is in day 8
    3. Ducks is in day 8
    And all of the remaining eggs are at the same incubator because the other incubators are filled..

    Can i keep turkeys and ducks without turning for three days? Or should i keep all the eggs with the egg tray..

    Hi there. :frow

    I suggest that you designate an incubator solely for hatching... or don't set eggs so far apart next time. It's great to have so much life.. but why create issues of our own? :confused:

    Not turning at those stages will be detrimental... (reduce hatch) to those species. But continuing to turn could cause injury to the quail as they hatch.

    Good luck with your many adventures! :fl:wee

    You could always manually turn the turkey and duck eggs while the tray is off. That’s what I would do.

    But if you manually turn that would mean opening the incubator at least 3 times a day which will cause your hatchers to loose humidity
