    My 1yr old royal palm hen has been leaving for a few days and then returning. There is a large flock of wild turkeys in the fields surrounding our home. Could she be going off with them? Perhaps has a nest somewhere?

    Really good bet she is going off with them. Does she lay any eggs when back home? If she doesn't have her own Tom at home she will go where one is at. My neighbor's kept coming to my place to be with mine until I found one for my neighbor. Now I don't see her anymore.
