    I hatched my first turkeys ever over Memorial Day. It took about 24 hours from external pip to hatching with them. I had Rouen ducks at the same time, and they took 48 hours, roughly, from external pip to hatch.

    sry it took so long to get back been so busy. Thanks for the help. 8 of the 9 hatched. They are about the coolest little things I have ever had. They run to your hand every time you put it in the brooder. They love to be held. This is the first bunch of turkeys I have had is it just narragansett turkeys that act this way or is it all turkeys? I have 7 royal palm turkeys in the bator now. I will post some pic later.

    pretty much all the turkeys I have hatched are like that now that they are older they "talk" when they hear me wanting treats or just it seems my company I wouldn't say mine are cuddly but the older babies all mother the younger poults and they are great watch dogs I really enjoy them
