    What is difference in size between Turkey, Duck and Goose eggs? I am getting an incubator and was wondering if you could incubate Turkey eggs in a turner for either of the other eggs?

    I just got a Hovabator 1588 with auto turner for goose eggs. They told me to use this for turkey eggs. I am wondering if I can also use it for chicken eggs.

    I don't know about turkey eggs, but you can do duck eggs in a chicken turner. A goose turner is simply too big. I wouldn't try chicken or duck eggs in the goose turner.

    I had heard that you could do Turkey eggs in Duck egg turners. Someone is giving me an incubator and I don't know what it has but I want to try turkey eggs. I guess I shall see what I get.
    Thanks Heidi

    I use the chicken egg turner for my duck and turkey eggs....they work just fine IMO.
