    Quote:You will have to call the game wardens, they can take these or tell you who will be able to "rehabilitate" them. Good luck!

    Don't quote me on this because I can't see the veining and I'm only going on the aircell size and how full the eggs look, but I'm think about 21 days or so.

    :lauThey should be hatching in the next few days! I bet they are out by Monday. You also can not have these eggs! You should edit this post for these "standard bronze" eggs!

    it is illegal in our state to have wild eastern turkeys i could raise them an prob get away with it but i like the fact my girls want to do the right thing an give them to a rehab center.we are just happy we found someone local that can take them
