    My turkey laid 9 eggs "EVERY OTHER DAY"(is this normal?) and then went broody and sat, one egg got missing during the time and out of the eight, 3 hatched and the weak one died 4 days later but the other 2 are doing fine with momma.
    Was it too long a time before she sat? She was good on the eggs.
    Should we have turned them in the nest? Next time maybe the incubator!
