Turkey egg

I have a :turkey: egg in my incubator. In fall i picked up 1 tom and 3 hens. Turkeys are very cool and friendly any way they are young but one has started laying eggs. She has layed  5 or 6 eggs now so because I have changed my incubating set up a little I popped the last egg in the bator. Cant wait to see if its fertile :excited: I have seen the Tom have is way with the lady's a few times but not as active as a rooster would be. I have built a hatcher now but its never been tested but my plan is to add eggs to the bator any time and keep track of them and at 18 days move them to my hatcher.
also I'm so pumped I just ordered turkey bells from Berryhill they are like cowbells but really small. How cool is that. I will post some pictures of the turkeys wearing there bells when I get them.

Re: Turkey egg

It could be too soon to start hatching the turkey eggs ? I dont know so it may or may not work out but thought I would try. It would be cool though if it did i'm a little :excited:

Re: Turkey egg

This may be a dumb comment But you know that it takes 28 days to hatch a turkey egg right? Just making sure...

Re: Turkey egg

I figured you knew but I would rather ask a dumb question than make a bad assumption.

I think we are going to give hatching turkeys a try right away too. We will collect eggs for another week or so and then the fun begins!

Re: Turkey egg

That's cool PG please keep us posted on your turkey hatch I don't know much if anything about them. I have only done chickens so far. I have only had my turkeys since fall and they have just started to lay eggs they are not that old yet I'm guessing they were from a spring hatch. Very friendly though I really enjoy having them around.
