out of the fourteen on day five under the broody, nine are definantly viable, two are unclear, and three are clear, the thre that are clear i marked them w/ a pancil and put them back under her incase they are fertile eggs that were snuck into the nest friday by my other turkeys. and the five turkey eggs in the nestbox with the two broody bantams are all fetile...the two bantams have a total of 20 eggs (5 turkey eggs and 15 of their own eggs) the turkey eggs in their nest have been incubated for a week longer than the chicken eggs so they all hatch at the same time

I'll bet those mommas are going to wonder why they have some strange looking babies!

I tried getting one of my Jerseys to incubate some turkey eggs last year, but it didn't work out. I hope it does for you.
