    when do turkey eggs go in lockdown ? is it 3 days before hatch like chickens or is it sooner ? Ive got 2 dozen slate, burbon red and royal palm eggs in the incubator and some are actually developing !!!!

    I stop turning at 25 days, they usually pip around day 27 and little turkeys running around shortly after.
