...fertile Turkey eggs last before being placed in an incubator?
i, and most others go more than 7 days. but viability is a little longer than that.
i go 10-12 days, i think i have gone 14 once
I have eggs spaced over 14 days that hatched last weekend, and I have another batch spaced over the same time period due to hatch May 7th. I didn't have a 100% hatch, but the eggs that didn't perform were from the middle, not the far end of the cycle.
I've set them over three weeks old (refrigerated) and still had a few hatch. But if you can set them before 7-10 days you'll get your best percentages. Even out to two weeks do pretty well if you stored them well.
I've found 15 fertile Naragansett eggs for sale for $14. They are 12-14 days old if they've not already sold. Is this a good deal?
Even if you get 50% hatch, it will be a good deal.
