    I was feeding my turkeys when i saw 2 turkey eggs on the ground while it is raining. i picked the eggs and i think the 1st egg were laid 2 days ago. does it have a chance to hatch?

    There's always a chance but the rain will wash off the bloom, that combined with being on the ground would allow bacteria to enter. The bacteria could kill the embryo mid incubation.
