Depends on how old the embryos were when incubation was interrupted. Far along, they are probably dead. Very early, there’s a chance, especially since it is quite warm. Before the start of incubation, an excellent chance. Of course, it also depends on how many hours ago the nest was hit.
Probably worth getting them immediately into turkey level warmth (101-103 F? I would have to check) Then one could “candle” them in a day or so and see whether there’s any movement in blood vessels, how old or developed they are, etc. Anne > On Jul 10, 2019, at 12:09 PM, psaracin <psara...@rochester.rr.com> wrote: > > > > > One of Janet Aiken's son's guy hit a turkey nest while mowing.
