My husband and I are new to this turkey business. We've only got 2 hens and a tom, all free ranged. Nearly 8 weeks ago the sisters had a communal nest and we now have 8 cute hatchlings They are sitting again. Well we know one is. But the other one has disappeared. She vanished 8 days ago. I figured they had different nests this time around and I know the one is the only one on her nest. Is it normal for a hen to disappear when they start to set? The other hen still comes off her nest to feed and she is done laying. So I'm really concerned but not sure if I need to be. There isn't any other turkeys around here nor is there turkey hunting. And she was a perfect bill of health when I saw her 8 days ago. Has this happened to anyone else? I just hope she shows up in a months time with little ones and I'll feel better but I am very concerned.
