Turkey eggs. Incubation and hatching Q's

Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by Guinea Goonie, Apr 21, 2009.

  1. A buddy brought some wild turkey eggs over from a nest that apparently had 5 eggs and no mama turkey.

    So, I put them in the bator 99 degrees and water in the bottom of an LG incubator.

    I know that the gestation is 28 days, but what else do I need to know about these eggs.

    I candeled them last night and they do have the embryo growing after about 5 days.

    I would love to have a nice big turkey for hawk deterence down the road. I gather though, that these guys will eventually find the wild cousins and take off ?

    thanks in advance
