    Is that the only turkey hen you have? Maybe another one is laying in the same nest? Most times they will lay a clutch and then sit on them but it's hard to tell from when they start sitting to when they stop laying. How many days have passed since she started sitting until you found the other 2 eggs? I would mark the first 4.
