    Hi everyone!

    I just got my first clutch of blue slate turkey eggs today and placed them in the incubator as we speak. I've read several websites regarding temperature and humidity for incubation and lockdown for turkey eggs but need much-needed advice.

    What is the optimal level for turkey eggs since they differ a bit compared to incubating chicken eggs?

    I really don't think they differ that much except they take 28 days rather than 21.
    Turkey hens can incubate chicken eggs and vice versa so they can't be that much different.
