    i have a brahma hen sitting on 3 eggs. 2 turkey/chicken eggs and 1 turkey egg. i know the turkey egg takes 28 days. its been 22 days and nothing. i know that chickens take 21 days. so my question is how long do i let her sit on the mix eggs before i take them? thanks.

    Wait until tomorrow before you take the chicken eggs. Some are slow growers.

    The hen may try to kill the turkey poult once she realizes it is not a chicken, so keep an eye out.
