    The two Auburn turkey eggs I received in an assortment are clear on day 15 as are most of the others in that assortment-- they evidently weren't fertile (have several other eggs doing just fine in the incubator) but I would love dearly to hatch a few turkey babies-- anyone have some to sell or donate to the cause?

    I would try to find them local. I have had 0% hatch rate on 3 different shipments of turkey eggs while my own eggs were hatching at nearly 100%.

    If you can't find them local then I would order poults from Ideal. They will ship a minimum of 10 and you can mix turkey breeds to total 10 or more.

    Thank you, I figured local too so this afternoon I posted on a farm classifieds list and may have found some poults but no eggs. Oh well, maybe I'll just get youngsters and make my own eggs later ;0)
