1. We had to cook the turkey for six hours.

2. We had to cook the turkey in six hours.

3. We had to cook the turkey until six hours.

4. We had to cook the turkey from six hours.

5. We had to cook the turkey after six hours.

(#1 is right? What about the others? If we use other prepositions, can't we make correct sentences? Would you let me know what other prepositions we can use? Thank you.)

Yes. # 1 is right. It took six hours of cooking for the turkey to be completely cooked.

The other sentences have different meanings -- but are not usually used.
======================================
(Thank you for your help. Would you like to check the following?)

1. We had to cook the turkey for six hours. (correct)

2. We had to cook the turkey in six hours. (What does this mean? Does 'in' mean 'within'? And then is this sentence correct?)

3. We had to cook the turkey until six hours. ( If we use 'until 7:00' p.m. instead of 'until six hours',then this sentence is right?)

4. We had to cook the turkey from six hours. (If we use 'from 7:00 a.m.' instead of 'from six hours', then is this sentence correct?)

5. We had to cook the turkey after six hours. (If we use 'after 7:00 a.m. instead of 'after six hours', then is this sentence correct?)
