Will turkeys sit and hatch their eggs?

post #2 of 10
Yes but they sit on them when they are done laying all their eggs!

Unlike chickens, most hatchery turkeys still seem pretty inclined to go broody.

Yep!

Chickens were fun...until I got turkeys!
Narragansetts, Golden Narragnasetts, Royal Palms, Calico, Standard Bronze, Red Bronze, (and a few BB Bronze..but don't tell anyone!)
Mixed flock of laying hens
Mixed-stock pigs

Two-many horses

They will lay until their nest is full and then sit. You can leave them if you would like..or take acouple and leave some. I always leave them with the hen. My hens are great moms!
