    Its day 7 of my dozen eggs in the bator. I candled this morning not expecting to see alot but just to see. All i noticed were veins in the fat end looking like they were just starting. But all 12 had them thats a great sign im guessing. Im keeping my humidity between 30 and 45% temp from 99 to 100.

    I've not hatched out turkey eggs, but have experience with chicken eggs. Day 7, you typically won't see a lot. Maybe a vein or two. Sounds like yours are doing good.:D

    Please keep us posted and :welcome

    No problem. The only incubating ive done is quail eggs ive got that down to a tee. Ive incubated one dozen mail order chicken eggs one formed none hatched wont do that again. I decided to try these turkey eggs on a whim. One of those why not nothin else to do things, plus the eggs were only 30 bucks for a dozen from a guy 20 minutes from me ones on ebay are like 80 and 90 bucks for the same types.I live in the city and cant keep them lol. But i have people that im gonna give them to if they make it. I have 7 chickens i can have those i might try to keep one turkey hen but ill have to see how that plays out.

    Shipped eggs have a fat chance of being treated as they should. I've only got eggs from locals. Taking a great risk & having chicks shipped next month from California. Only bought from local hatcheries in the past as well.
