    We brought 3 new turkey hens home today & this is what I found in the pen after we got them settled. I think this is an egg from one of them, but it's been YEARS since I've been around a turkey egg.

    (The pen had been open all day & other critters running around, in & out.)

    Sure is a turkey egg, you can tell from all the different sized and multiple speckles.

    Woo Hoo! Now to figure out if it's fertile, or not! If it's done like a chicken egg, then it doesn't appear to be, it's clear all the way through, no air pocket that I can see. [​IMG]
