Turkey on eggs
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
I have a turkey hen that I lost for 2 weeks whom i found today in a bush. she is laying on nine turkey eggs and quite a few chicken eggs I have no tom is it possible that she mated with a wild turkey and chances are the chicken eggs are fertile will she be able to raise those chicks or will she reject them? Please help
Lots of things are possible. With turkeys it is even possible for parthenogenesis to occur (very rare) where a poult develops without fertilization having taken place. In those cases the poult will always be a male. It occurs most often in Beltsville Small White turkeys.
The problem with leaving both chicken and turkey eggs in the same nest is that the chicks will hatch a week before the poults will hatch thus causing the hen to leave the nest before any poults hatch.
That is an option.
