There's always something new to discover when you keep poultry...today my tom turkey, Wilson, has gone broody! Yeah, that was my reaction too when my boys came in from doing the chicken chores chuckling and shaking their heads. Some chicken hens have been laying eggs in the big wooden dog house where Wilson sleeps and today he was hunkered down over them. My son said that when he tried to make Wilson come out that the bird puffed up his feathers and hissed at him. Just the way the turkey hens do when they've gone broody. What would you do? I'm reluctant to let Wilson continue setting these eggs. Hens are designed by nature to set for weeks with no ill effects. I'm afraid that Wilson's health will suffer if he doesn't eat or walk around as much as he should. Although I sure am curious to see if he really would set until they hatched, and if he would tend to the chicks. He's just so big and klutzy, I think he'd make scrambled eggs before he'd make chicks.
