    I'm getting a few Turkey eggs from the giving Miss-Jayne. I want to know what temps and humidity you use for Turkeys. Thanks [​IMG]

    Depends on the type of incubator you have, still air types have different temp setting than forced air. We use a GQF Sortsman and use the same settings as for chicken eggs, 100F about 45% rh until they stop turning then about 55% to 60% for hatching. The book calls for 99.5 temp And ours do hatch about a 1/2 early but it works great for us.
