    Hi,
    I am breeding heirloom Croad Langshans (Blue's & Greens) and have just started with the broad breasted bronze turkeys. Looking for sorely needed advice relating to heirloom breeds and their weirdness.... nothing in the books about my three Croad hens currently brooding one clutch of eggs..... They pile themselves on top of them and are happy to share them. Do you think these are a Mormon strain?

    Anyone else seen this?

    What will happen when they hatch?

    Who is Momma?

    Rofl! Who knows!

    [​IMG] If the group isn't damaging the eggs, I'd just enjoy it. Maybe it takes a village(of turkeys) to raise them.
