every time i hatch a batch of turkey eggs, there is always 1 or 2 eggs that pip big holes in the egg but thats it. The turkey just sits there making noise and ends up making bubbles and then drying up then I have to help it out the egg wash it up then everything is fine. I'm starting to think my computer fan is too strong and is drying it up with the air movement. Is this possible? Twice there were turkeys that zipped all around then thats it. The humidity is always at 60 to 65 percent. Should it be higher maybe? This has never happened with chicken eggs and i have hatched them together.
I had the same problem, then just a couple days ago, in the turkey section of this forum, someone posted you should run 80% humidity. I'm going to try that this time.
