    Family is thrilled that our Royal Palm tom and Bronze hen might actually have sealed the deal! When gathering the chicken eggs in the coop we found our very first turkey egg and immediately wrapped it up. NOW what? Please help we don't have an incubator yet so we need specifics....light? Temp? Humidity? Time? Please help some Dummies! Thanks :)

    Cobble together a nesting area for the hen and let her start to work a clutch (so long as area is somewhat isolated from interference from other poultry, in a safe location she'll do the work for you - or you can collect up eggs - always leave one on nest so she'll stay there and lay another).
