Bourbon Red hatch

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have three bourbon reds, a tom and two hens. They are about a year old and the hens have laid 13 eggs over the last two weeks. Neither of the hens are sitting on the eggs. Is there still a chance they will hatch them? Is there something I need to do? I would love some baby turkeys!

They may decide to sit on them, they may not. The first year my turks started laying, the didn't sit (and I REALLY wanted poults too, so it was disappointing). They did both brood the second year though. Yours might, or might not. Its still early in the laying season, so who knows!

If you're leaving the eggs in the coop, you might collect them and replace them with golf balls or plastic Easter eggs (especially if its still chilly where you are).

How long will they continue to lay? I haven't removed the eggs and one of the girls sat on the nest overnight but got up first thing this morning.
