    I have a turkey hen (laying age) that has dissappeared. Is it likely that she is off sitting on a nest somewhere? She started a nest near the house and something got to the eggs, not long after that we noticed she was missing.

    well with our turkeys we found that they had to build a clutch. It doesn't sound as if there was enough time between something getting her nest & her disapearance for her to build a new clutch (usually more than ten). So if it were my girl, and I found no sign of her I would consider the possibility that something did get her. Therefore it's important to find out what, and how it got her, and start method preventions to stop future missing birds.

    Good luck juju coming your way![​IMG]
