I have a trio of Narragansett turkeys (1 male 2 female) that are nine months old
The hens started laying eggs about a week ago, my question is will they hatch their eggs this spring or will they just let the eggs go because they are still so young?
my Narragansett hybrids do not want to set very well, but my blue slate is good at it.She sat faithfully for a month andthen I got concerned about her eggs so I pulled them and incubated them. They all hatched. Ithink it just depends on the breed and their willingness to set.
I have a Narragansett trio too. I have 1 hen that has hatched the eggs two years in a row now. She just started sitting the other day on her third hatch. The other hen that I have never sits, so I think it just depends on the bird.
