    I am so excited to post my Eastern Wild Turkey Hen is BROODY!! Yeah! I moved her to her own pen two nights ago, the following morning she was still setting well on the plastic eggs so I gave her five of her own eggs back. Today is officially day 1 of incubation and when I fed her tonight I saw a 6th egg! Does anyone know how long she will continue to lay while she is sitting on the eggs? I am so excited for her to be a mommy hopefully the next 28 days go well!

    How wonderful for you.

    She should soon stop laying. Otherwise she'll have a longer than normal hatch!
