So my turkey hen is just about 9 months old. She has been breeding with our tom. Now it appears that she has gone broody. She has her nest outside in her run under a rose of sharon bush. 2 days 2 nights she's been on there. And got really mad at me when I made her get off to go eat. She hissed at me, and ran away chattering up a storm. I have been collecting her eggs daily. And I have 5 eggs from the last 8 days or so. All stored on the counter pointed side down in an egg carton. Now my question. Can I take those eggs and put them under her? Or will she continue to lay eggs until the clutch is what she feels she needs? Would that would make it a staggered hatch if she continues to lay? Or should I just let her keep laying eggs and wish for a hatch when ever? Um its the end of October in northern Indiana. Its going to be getting cold soon. She's outside, will I need to take the poults away or keep them with mom? And dad? he is ignoring her. He checks on her, but otherwise just leaves her alone. Why o why did she have to go broody now?. Guess I won't be getting my porter turkeys in the spring! Here is her spot for a nest. They are in a fenced in yard right behind our house.
