    My friend has tried to hatch some of her heritage turkey eggs a few times now. They always die a few days before hatch. She said she was told humidity should be 75 but she can't ever get it that high. I am hoping I can find some info as the 5 turkey eggs I have set to hatch May 5th are from her flock and I want to avoid the same problem of death before hatch.

    Ideas?? Those that hatch Turkeys tell me your system of having a good hatch! If anyone has experienced early deaths like this and figured out a solution fill me in. Please and thank you.
