    I have a small flock of heritage bronze turkeys (1 tom, 4 hens). The hens are laying now and have been for about 11 days (an egg a day/nest is pretty much the pattern). I have 19 total eggs in two nests right now - they laid yesterday.

    I do have an incubator, but would prefer to have the hens set the eggs. How long should I wait before that happens? At what point should I pull the eggs and try to incubate them myself?
