    I have not tried turkey eggs but I'm told they are similar in size to peacock eggs, and my peacock eggs fit in my hovabator egg turner. For whatever that is worth to you lol

    yes i have 20 turkey eggs in now. you just have to space them out. otherwise they will touch each other. i have them in two gqf turners.

    What kind of bator do you have? I have a Dickey's and GQF and I bought duck egg trays for them. They kinda fit in the chicken trays but may fall out when your turner turns. I have a LG chicken egg turner that I use to put turkey eggs in while I collect them for the week for incubating(so I don't have to hand turn). I leave it on my laundry room counter and it stays about 68deg in there but it doesn't tilt as much as the Dickey's of GQF.

    I use regular egg turners for my turkey eggs , sometimes I need to skip a space to every other one because of the size.
