Laying on an egg

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a female turkey that has been laying on an egg for about 4 days. I don't have a male so it's not fertile. Will she keep laying on it till I take from her? I always take the eggs but this one I just left her have. I'm afraid that she's not getting up and moving around to strength her legs and eat and drink.

Take the egg and block her nesting site, being broody without an end purpose is draining on them.

I brake for squirrels.

If you want poults try to buy some fertile eggs and put them under her. Or buy some day old chicks so she can raise them, that is if you want some chickens. If you want to break her broodyness put her in a cage for a few days and she will return to normal. Just make sure she has food and water, I had to break one of my hens earlier this year.
