So a couple months ago, my turkey decided that she wanted to be broody and decided to give it a try in my chickens nest boxes. She tried accepting any eggs that they would sneak her (which I removed, much to her dismay). I tried keeping her occupied with golf balls, but she seemed to figure out that they were duds and would regularly switch nest boxes to be on some REAL eggs. So I eventually caved and gave her some duck eggs (not really wanting any more chicks at the time). She was good with them for awhile, but the "nest switching" behavior was still her thing she did...going to whichever box had the most eggs in it. So they ended up not hatching. Around the same time, I decided to hatch a few ducklings in the incubator and when they hatched decided to just give it a try. Coincidentally on Mother's Day, I decided to give her the newly hatched ducklings. Here were the results: Here's one from yesterday: Still adores her ducklings. Though there has been a slight crisis and a few other bumps but so far it's been a very interesting learning experience. She is so protective of her ducklings that she actually attacked and killed three of my younger chicks that i had had in the same coop with her. Lesson learned, don't mess with Turkey, or give anyone else a chance to mess with Turkey. Thankfully I seem to be deemed trustworthy around her ducklings and am spared her wrath. There also appears to be a bit of language barrier between the two parties. She squawks out an order in turkey and the ducklings respond "WATER!!1" or "SLOPPY SWAMP!!" in duck. Also, she has a habit of flying wherever she pleases...leaving the ducklings trapped in the pen. Other than those few things, it's been a very interesting experience.
