    I have incubated duck eggs successfully many times. I usually incubate duck and chicken eggs together with no problem. But now I have some turkey eggs so I'm wondering can I incubate them with duck eggs? Isn't the temp and humidity about the same?

    You are correct duck temps & turkey temps length of incubator and humidity and temps are the same (at least when we do them)

    I've been reading that duck eggs should be misted with warm water at least once a day staring day 4 of
    incubation. Never read this for turkey eggs, so that maybe an issue.
