If unhatched eggs are under her I sure wouldn't trust her to take care of them.
All the eggs are out. I finally kicked her out of te nest box. The babies are following her around and she still sits on them, but she isn't feeding or watering them. I keep having to take food and water to the area she is laying in. The babies get up, eat and drink a little and then settle back under her. But, I did that in the morning yesterday and then she sat on them all day long and I had to do it again in the evening. This morning all the other birds were long since up and she was right where I left her. I had to make her move an spread some feed on the ground so the poults could eat. Are all turkeys this bad at parenting?
