    About what day along should you be able to see movement of turkeys..I know they incubate for 28 days so was wondering if it is past 7 days like 10 or 12 into it that you can see if fertile or not??

    I would wait until at least day 10. They are kind of hard to candle and I only candled a couple of times. I did Day 12 and Day 20

    I was thinking about hatching some of them. Do they go at 99.5 too?
