    I got a doz Naragansett Turkey eggs and put them in the bator yesterday. Is it different from hatching chickens?

    They're pretty much the same as far as temperature and humidity go. Turkeys take 28 days, lockdown on day 25. They're pretty hard to candle until about day 10. I have hatched 10 so far this year with 5 more in the bator. I think I'm going to set a out 20 more this week. [​IMG]

    good luck with your hatch!!

    Just make sure you get the humidity in the 60-65 range for lockdown.
