Thanks to everyone for the information so far!! I now realize I need to remove Miss Margie's eggs as they are not fertile. But I would like some advice on "breaking" her of the her sitting instinct and reintroducing her back to the flock of 9 chickens and Pete (Who is actually a female turkey too) You see, Pete has become aggresive to Margie ever since she started sitting on he eggs. Pete chases her around the yard, they all free range in the day, and grabs her by the neck. I try to seperate them, I know I am inteferingmbut I can't stand to see her being picked on.. She has lost weight from her sitting, barely eats. Should I remove the eggs and keep her seperate until she gets a little stronger? Thanks SO MUCH for the advice!!!
