    This is from the http://www.msstate.edu/dept/poultry/hatch.htm#cond site. It says for Turkey 28-incubation/ 99-temp./ 84-86-humidity/ 25th day-stop turning/ 90humidity last 3 days/ 25th day-open vents more
    Idk if this is right, I haven't hatched turkeys. But maybe this will help.

    Quote:Wow that humidity is way to HIGH. Are you sure or is that a wet temp. reading. Temp. and days to hatch are right.

    We use the same settings as for chicken eggs in a GQF Sportsman. As already said stop turning on day 25 hatch about day 28-ish
