We have a greenhouse full of turkeys! It was turkey liberation day at the farm — all of the poults that hatched last week are now in a larger brooder in the greenhouse. They’ve got a larger “turkey toaster” (a plate heater) for the evenings, but they are running around, exploring, and happily eating green leafy things.

First Turkey Poult
2023 Turkey Hatching – The Eggs Have Landed
2023 Hatch – Turkey Hatching
We’re setting up the incubator tonight to get our first dozen turkey eggs going.
I need to leave the incubator sit overnight to get the temperature and humidity regulated. Tomorrow, we’ll be putting the eggs into the incubator.
Pointy end down, may need to leave empty space between eggs so they fit
Forced-air incubator, so set to 99.5 degrees F (monitoring for temps between 99 and 100 F)
First 25 days, relative humidity 50-60%
Final three days, increase humidity to 65-70%
