    Hi! I'm new to incubating. Out of my 1st 5 Turkey eggs (20 more to go), only 2 survived. When performing an eggtospsie, the 3 that didn't survive had the same issue. What do y'all think is wrong? (Pic included) Thanks for your help

    Need more info.
    How old were eggs when set to incubate?
    Curious about the "20 more to go".
    What kind of incubator?
    Did you calibrate your thermometers and hygrometers?
    How did the temp and humidity hold thru the incubation and lock down periods?
    On what day did the survivors hatch?
    On what day did you give up and do the eggtopsies?
    Looks like abdomen is not quite closed up.
