    I will be getting some turkey and peafowl eggs to hatch and I have been having a hard time finding info online about that. I was hoping that someone here might have information or links to information that could help me with this.

    Thank you for your help.

    I've never incubated pea fowl but I have hatched turkeys a few times. Turkey eggs require the same conditions as chickens but take an extra week to hatch (28 days).

    Since turkeys take longer to hatch, you also shouldn't candle them as soon.

    I just hatched turkey poults for the first time and they were way easier for me than chickens for some reason! hehe We had 6 out of 7 hatch!
