    Hey everyone,

    This is my first year breeding turkeys. So I have a Narangaset/bourbon red tom and 2 Spanish black hens. He's bred with both and one has a clutch of about 18 eggs and has started to brood the other hen has laid 4, 1 broke and I keep finding the other 3 scattered. I've put them back together twice. I'm wondering if I can move the brooder into a brooding coop I have set up(with her eggs), can I add the other eggs, or will this make her quit setting on them? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
