    Hey everyone I'm pretty new to the site but I found this site from a Google search hoping I can get some good tips on hatching turkey eggs I will be getting in a few days . I have incubated chicken eggs and duck eggs but I'm not sure if the turkey eggs need less humidity in the incubator? ?

    I incubate at 20 to 35 percent humidity. Then raise to 70 plus for hatch.

    There is no difference in temp or humidity than chicken eggs. If you've hatched those successfully use the same parameters you used in the past.

    What kinda of turkey eggs are you getting?

    You use the same humidity, but they take a lot longer than a chicken to hatch, so make sure you mark calendars so you don't forget to stop turning them at the right time! :)
