    The hatching period for Turkeys is longer than quail. You can refer to this table for help. It varies depending on the breed.

    Hi all.
    I need some clarification.
    Can anybody tell me is misting and cooling essential for muscovy eggs?
    And if so, what day should I start, and what process so I follow?
    Thanks :)

    Also, these two eggs I have are on day 30 today.
    Ideally should have misted/cooled from earlier I understand, but mumma duck and a silky chook WERE brooding on them until a week ago.

    Hi everyone, new to this thread! I have some guinea eggs in the incubator and last night one of the eggs was shaking and now tonight another one is shaking. It is only day 23. Should I be worried that they might hatch a couple days early? How long could it take until I see a crack in the shell? Any info would be great!
