Will turkeys sit and hatch their eggs?

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!
