    I have a frizzle hen named Fancy that went broody almost 2 weeks ago... So I gave her a couple turkey eggs to set on.
    My Jersey Buff turkey hen (Cody) kept laying eggs next to her and Fancy would pull them up under her,
    Now she is setting on 11 turkey eggs
    and Cody has gone broody right next to Fancy.
    They are so funny to watch!!
    Cody reaches under Fancy and pulls the eggs to her
    Fancy retaliates and takes as many as she can back
    Cody pecks her on the head
    Fancy screetches like a banshee
    But neither one of them is gonna move an inch.

    And Im staying the heck away from both of them!!

    Im not sure the eggs are even fertile for sure.
    I think they are, but those are gonna be some really confused poults if they hatch!
