    I have to say first of all I am new at the site and so happy to read up on all the great info. on this site. I have recently invested in incubators and have been hatching quails with no problem, I am up to 25 chicks. I purchased a new incubator and bought Turkey eggs offline and I didn't realize that my auto egg turner was mistaking unplugged for the first 5 days these turkey eggs were in there, does anyone know if these will still hatch? Thankyou in advance for your response. Liz

    If they were not turned for only the first 5 days, then they should be fine! [​IMG]

    You count from the first day you start incubating them.
    Good luck on your hatch,
