    My turkey hen has layed on eggs for 4 weeks now and they finally hatched, what do i do??? should i bring special food to them, maybe take them inside with their mom to take better care of them and their mom and to keep them from not being eaten since that has been a problem for me before!
    They are sooooo cute, they have tiny snoods and are yellow with brown and black dots! not to mention their pink claws!

    Personally, I would bring them in and put them in a brooder.

    Poults don't need much space however the momma would need at least 6 square feet.

    Give them as close to 28% feed as you can.
