    I am getting ready, as in tomorrow to try my hand at incubating. I built an incubator off of Missprissy's plans and have been tuning it for two days and got everything set. I'm putting in a dozen off my chickens eggs to try it before i buy any. my friend has a trio of turkeys that lay and i wanted to try to hatch those as well. Is it just like hatching chicken eggs or are the temps/humidity/gestation different?

    We use the same settings for chicken and turkey eggs in our 'bator. Turkey eggs stop turning at 25 days and hatch 28-ish.
