    Im on day 3 of my turkey hatch. I read you should wait till day 5 to candle. Are there any links or webs with actual pictures for comparison?
    Thanks

    On turkey eggs, I would wait until day 10-14 to candle for the first time. They take 28 days of incubation and growth is not as evident as on chicken eggs in the first week. Good luck with your hatch.
