Howdy~ So i'm still a bit in shock but just a few minutes ago I was out collecting eggs and what-not. I've got a working station in my barn with an 8' x 5' desk. Under it is a small area full of hay where my turkeys like to lay, When I went to look I saw my little mixed turkey hen (Assuming it's a bourbon x slate) laying on the nest. Normally i'd reach under her and check for eggs and she wouldn't mind, But when I went to reach under her she completely puffed up and lunged at my hand as if it where a fox or something! She really did a number on my hand She wouldn't get off the nest or stop making 'hissing' sounds at me.. She is a new layer and just started laying a couple of weeks ago. although she's almost 11 months old. Is this her being protective or is this her going broody? This is her taken a few days ago.
