    Yes, you can stop turning your turkey eggs. Actually, they recommend to stop turning on day 25, but today is fine. I just lay mine on their side to hatch. Good luck with your hatch!

    Stop turning them; actually I stop on day 22 or 23 but it shouldn't matter. I don't have an automatic turner so all mine hatch on their sides. I usually have better than a 90% hatch rate of fertile eggs set.

    Good luck with them.
