    How do you know the egg she laid is fertile?

    I put it in incubator then did not know whether to keep it there or not... after a few days I candled it and saw veins... so I know something is developing... But I wonder what this egg could be??

    Did you raise the turkey yourself? I only ask because if you got her full grown from a place that has Toms, the hen can retain sperm for up to 15 days with which to fertilise her eggs.

    Is there a posiibility of a wild turkey having been around her, maybe during free range?


    Personally, I hope it was your roo!! That would be pretty cool! I have a few turkeys myself, but no Tom (we eat the eggs) it would be fun to try to hatch their eggs if my roo was to breed them. Right now he just bullies them around .

    Hmmmmm, could your egg be where Turkens come from? [​IMG]

    Keep that puppy in the bator, keep those temps and humidity stable and get your camera ready... and if it doesn't hatch on it's own you may have to help it.

    Chickurky!
