Incubating turkey eggs
Ok, I have been helping out a farmer friend of mine who is trying a no-till planting in one of his fields, while mowing the field a couple of weeks ago I noticed a turkey hen on a clutch of eggs. We made note of their location and left an island of grass around them unmowed.
Last evening shortly before dark we were out walking the field, ventured too close to the hen who spooked and went running across the field to some woods, just as she approached the woods a fox jumped out and got her. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it.
I very carefully collected the eggs, marking the top with a pencil and put them in a make shift incubator, I have the temperature at 100 degrees +/- and the humidity is around 85%.
Anyone got any idea what the likelyhood is of these eggs hatching? I will rotate them several times daily and know that the hen has been on them for about two weeks.
