    So ive decided to try my hand at turkeys for the simple reason im bored and wanna see if i can do it. Ive read over tons of info about feeding and how ignorant they are about starving. Only real question is about my incubator. Nothing fancy just a tsc farm innovators forced air model. Ive always just left my plugs out for chicken and quail eggs should i do the same for turkey eggs.

    Turkey eggs need just as much air as any other eggs. Leave the plugs out.

    You should not believe everything that you read. I don't have any problem getting poults to eat and drink. The key is not to start with just a couple of poults and it doesn't hurt to have a chick in with newly hatched poults.

    You definitely should read the Turkeys 101 thread.
