    I was at my cousins today, and she gave me two turkey eggs. Now could they be fertile?

    I was there last in October 18th and they had a male and female turkey. My cousin said that her friend(long story, she keeps her chickens on a friends property) got rid of the male turkey. I asked her when exactly, though I don't know if I'll get a reply. I don't know the type of turkey, it was brown though and the eggs are speckled. I think I have a picture of the female.

    If these eggs aren't fertile, I'd rather not waste them trying to set them.

    Thanks.

    Should still be good. Most generally one successful mating is good for entire breeding season

    Well, I ended up setting them both anyways. :lol:
