    I had 6 turkey eggs due to hatch tomorrow and 6 opington due yesterday; 5 of each were looking good and developing last week but just candled and only one of each still has an airsac. No idea what happened, they are under a pair of chickens so I have no idea about humidity; but i rarely see the girls off their nest.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Someone please correct me if I am wrong, but if they are due to hatch tomorrow, then they may have internally pipped. If they have then they are now taking up the air cell space with their body in a new position getting ready to hatch. Sounds like they are right on track!
