    Have another batch of (expensive [​IMG] )turkey eggs coming thru the mail. Last batch of 18 (from 3 different breeders) I had NO hatches. First batch of 9 (from one breeder) I had one hatch, two fully developed that absorbed the yolk sac that didn't hatch, and the rest of them didn't develop properly.

    Followed the instructions I got to the letter, raising the humidity the last three days, maintaining the proper temp, etc. Have a digital thermometer, humidity gauge. I use a hova-bator with the fan.

    Any suggestions? Would really like to get a good hatch this time
