    At the last chicken show I bought 10 turkey eggs. I put them in an incubator and today, two have hatched and are in a home-made bruter. I have them at a 97-105 ranged temperatures with an infared light, and I just want to make sure that I'm not roasting my new pulets.

    A little warm. Start them at 95 degrees then go down five degrees each week just as with chickens.

    Thanks. This is my first time raising turkeys so I'm not experienced. Thanks for the advice.
