    I have a turkey egg coming to me and I want to make sure he has the best possible chance to hatch. I have never used an incubator before so this will be the first time. We have a Little Giant with a fan. I bought a good thermo/hygrometer and Im hoping for the best.

    My silkie girl has been broody for about week. This is the first time she has wanted to sit in a nest and she is about 2 years old. We dont have any roosters here.

    If you really, really wanted a turkey to hatch would you put it under Baby Silkie or in an incubator if you were me?

    I would put it under the broody, but have the bator ready if she should decide to leave the nest. Good luck.
