What kind of incubator do you guys use to hatch your turkeys?

    I was curious if there was any special thing or incubator needed to hatch turkey eggs since they are a bit bigger than chicken eggs. I just bought a HovaBator 1588 Genesis and wanted to know if that would hatch turkey eggs as it comes stock, or if I would need to buy specialized trays that fit turkey eggs.

    I believe that the 1588 comes with a wire screen in the bottom only, the turner is additional.

    It will hatch turkey eggs, however you will need to hand turn them.



    Good luck..........
