    I have one incubator that can hold 48 eggs and was wondering if I can incubate wild turkey eggs along with pheasant eggs and if so what is the process? Has anyone successfully don't this before?

    I am not sure if that's actually legal(harvesting wild turkey eggs) but sure you can. Probably need to put the turkey eggs in the incubator then in about 3 days add the pheasant eggs so they will hatch about the same time. It might work from a egg but the wild turkey chicks I got at a day old would not eat chick starter. So watch them if they hatch. Good Luck
