    Stop turning on day 26.

    My problem wih Turkeys has always been getting fertile eggs. I set 9, only three fertile and now have only two at day 26.[​IMG]

    Get that humidity up nice and high for hatch just like chickens.

    Stop turning day 25. Mine started pipping yesterday morning, and day 28 isn't until lunchtime tomorrow. So far I have 9 out of 9 developed, four hatched and four pipped.

    I've had mine hatch as early as day 26 many times, my current hatch is on day 28, two pipped. I have always had better hatches with turkeys than chickens.........

    Stop turning on day 25. Depending on your humidy level as to when they will start pipping. What type of bator do you have? We have hatched out hundreds of turkeys. Make sure after they hatch and you put them into the brooder box that they learn to eat and drink. Poults are not the smartest babies.
