Help I have had a turkey that has been brooding eggs for almost a month now. Well today as soon as the first one hatch my chickens mauled it. Ever since hey have been watching my turkey like a hawk and when she gets up they destroy her eggs and try to eat the babies. I don't know what to do or wether or not to move them to my incubator any help I would love

separate your turkey into a broody pen.(this can be anything from an old dog crate to a too small coop)

 

 

hope this helped!

Without hurting yourself with bites or scratches, Next time she gets up, grab the eggs and/or chicks, get her to follow you, then set her up separated from everyone else. That is what I do.
