My husband and I have had chickens for years, we've added turkeys to our flock and they all get along fine. This year we have added geese and ducks. This time of year they are all laying. My concern is my turkeys (I have to females) and my one female goose are all laying in the same nest. I even saw the two turkeys in the nest at the same time today. I watched my goose to see her reaction to the turkeys in her nest, she didn't seem to mind. Of course the turkeys were laying there first. My concern is when they actually start sitting. Should I move the turkey eggs to another nesting spot and if I do will they go to the new nest? They are laying in a place we made for the goose that is a half of a plastic barrel full of hay and has a cover. I have two more made and was thinking of putting the turkey eggs in another one and showing it to the turkeys......
We have an acre lot fenced with woven wire and inside that we have a large chicken/turkey house that has a smaller lot fenced that is attached. We let the chickens and turkeys out so they can roam around the acre lot. Also inside the are lot is a small pond where my geese stay. We have a large pond outside the fenced area where the ducks stay, but the geese seem to like to stay in the acre lot. So we have three of the half barrel for nesting thinking each turkey and the goose would use one, but all are using the same one.
Any help or suggestions would be great.
