    I have 3 eggs that hatch today. One started on its own yesterday, and was stuck and struggling in some type of shrinkwrap looking membrane??......so I helped it out today . I know turkeys are hard to hatch, so should I check the other 2? I really want to save them if I can. My humidity is 80% +. Temp has been a steady 100.6. (Until I opened the bator to help the one). I know to watch for blood in the sac if I need to help one of them......I guess what I'm saying is HELP!!!!!!

    Have the other two pipped? I would leave them alone until they manage to pip on their own. Sometimes one will pip early and then is not able to finish. They others may be just fine taking their time. Humidity seems fine. It's hard to wait it out but that is really the best thing to do.

    No they haven't pipped, and I'm fine waiting, but I just wondered why that one was so stuck.....and thought maybe the other 2 were as well. They are shaking a little.....that makes me feels better that they are alive anyways!
    Thanks for the reply!
