    I was trying to get my turkey to hatch eggs by leaving them in the coop for her but my RIR decided to hatch them instead. is there anything special i need to do. she is the top hen of the coop so she shouldnt get picked on. ive only ever used an incubator.....the turkey is still laying eggs and so are the other chickens, I have had to move her the last three days to get the chicken eggs out from under please

    The Coop :)
    Let me get this strait- you have a chicken siting on turkey eggs? Turkey and chicken eggs? Anyway, im guessing that your broody knows what shes doing, as long as you want whatever shes hatching, just let her be. Thats what i would do. Anyway, good luck! :)
