    Mine took 28 days, and I ran the temperature just slightly higher than for my chickens, right around 101 degrees.

    The guy I know who raises turkeys told me run them at the same temp or 99.5 and 28 days. That's worked every time, for next to perfect hatches. Three times so far. Same incubator and same treatment as the chicken eggs, just longer.

    My only disaster hatch came when I let a first time turkey broody try... ugh...nature sucks.
