    How big are turken (naked neck) eggs? i heard they are big, but how big would you say? such as the width and height? i cant seem to find this info anywhere!!

    Also, How big are they when they hatch usually? again, cant find this info anywhere.

    Other than those two questions, do you have any tips for incubating turken eggs? im doing this for the first time. I have had a pet chick a while back, but never had it from egg! im excited, and hope they hatch!!!! thanks for the help! [​IMG]

    They're chicken eggs so use the same technique as any other. 99.5 in forced air incubator, 100.5 at the top of the egg in a still air.
    up the humidity the last few days to about 65%
    They're supposed to be average to slightly larger so I'd say about 60 grams or so.
