Something getting the eggs

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a pair of rio turkey in a 16'x16' pen and something keeps getting the eggs. I keep finding empty egg shells in pen and sometimes completely gone. I've been trying to put out rat poison and rat and animal repellent but keeps raining so any ideas.

Coon or possum

I don't recommend rat poison.

Egg eating culprits are the turkeys themselves, opossums, skunks, and snakes. Most other things like raccoons, may kill the birds too.
