    Can you help?
    Does anyone know how long you leave your turkey chicks in the incubator after they have hatched?
    Regards

    I run high humidity and I am hands on.
    So I remove them when they are dry and move them to the brooder.

    But I guess if needed you can leave them in for a day or 2

    That's great thanks, what temperature should the brood be? I read 95-100 seems hi! Is it right?

    I start my brooder temperature for newly hatched poults at 90°F measured at the bedding level and lower by 5°F once a week. If I am starting keets and poults at the same time, I start at 95°F because of the keets.
