    you could make one but since your deling with wild turky eggs i sugest buying one. i have wild turkeys and they are very hard to hatch in a bought incubator so they will be even hader in a man made incbator

    First you need to find out whether it is legal to take wild turkey eggs and set them (or even if you *buy* them, I believe you need a permit in some states).

    Then, you need to make/buy an incubator and get good at hatching easier eggs with it, like multiple hatches of chicken eggs and then some domesticated turkey eggs.

    Otherwise you are just taking perfectly good eggs that could turn into perfectly good turkeys, and killing them.

    Good luck,

    Pat
