    yeah I have my goose egg in with the quail eggs right now at about 50ish humidity, as soon as my last set of chicken eggs is out Ill up the humidity to 60% and then after the quail hatch the goos will get its own perfect eviroment.
    so turkey eggs take 28 days , thats good to know so I wont freak out afeter all my chickens hatch and the turkey eggs still in there
    These eggs will be in a LG forced air with atuo turner Im gonna do my best to keep it at 99.5ish
    This is a hatch project for my son's preschool class so I really hope everythng works out .
