    I give up trying to figure out what she's thinking. I went out to gather her eggs and put them in the bator and she's back on them, flat as a pancake, growling at me lol. Last night, she went up to the roost and I had to put her back on her nest. Not sure what she's doing but maybe I just happened to see her every time she was off the nest today. Oh well. If she fails but still wants babies, I'll give her a couple when the ones in the bator hatch.

    Does anyone happen to know how soon after mating begins that turkey hens will come into lay? There's been a lot of mating going on in my turkey pen lately and my hens are squatting like crazy. Also, why are the girls strutting after being mated? Just curious.I'm a first time turkey mom. They are all, anywhere from 6-8 months old.
