    i want to incubate some turkey eggs. Do i use the same process as chickens like for lock down after 25 days.
     

  2. yes stop turning at 25 days and depending on your incubator temp they will hatch day 28-ish. 99.5 is the recomended temp but our incubator runs closer to 100F so they hatch about a day early but that doesn't bother the poults at all.

    Quote:If you are using an automatic turner, be certain the eggs can clear the top. We have set chicken eggs a few days later so they hatch with the turkeys.
