    Nope they will start to develope when conditions are right. Think if the hen was starting her nest, they would all be laid in about a week and then she would began to set and they will hatch at about the same time. Usually within a 24-48 hours of one another.

    I collect as many eggs as my hens lay within a ten day period. I ussally wouldnt go over ten days due to the fertility success of turkey eggs starts to go down after that. I would then put all the eggs i collected in the incubator and they will all hatch at the same time within a day of each other, and if they dont then the rest of the unhatched eggs are more then likely not gonna hatch. 28 days for turkeys.
