Incubating Turkey Eggs Question

treasurificgal(z8A CA)March 30, 2013

I am about to incubate some turkey eggs, some of which are very dirty. Should I clean them before incubating, or not?

You should brush off the dirt and manure without damaging the surface of the shell. You don't want bacteria to enter the shell and harm the poult.
