    I have a few questions about incubating turkey eggs........

    Is it okay to put turkey eggs into the incubator when the eggs are slightly muddy or have poo on them? Is there a cleaning solutions that should be used to clean eggs or should eggs be thrown away?

    After an egg has been laid ...should it be immediately put into the incubator or can it be left in refrigerator or at room temperature for a few days?

    I dont put extremely dirty eggs in incubator. I just knock off any dirt with a brush.

    Leave them in a cool room, until you have enough to put in bator, I wouldnt keep them much longer than a week to 10 days.
