    My turkey is sitting on duck and chicken eggs and won't get out of the coop. We don't have a male to breed her but she won't get off the eggs. Do you have any tips on getting her out of the coop and off of eggs. Thank you!!!! [​IMG][​IMG]

    Mounds OK
    why do you want her out? the chickens & ducks will just start another nest and if you don't have a tom this is her shot to be a momma!
    My turkey momma is awesome she raised 6 little ducks last year you should seen her pacing the pond dam when they were swimming [​IMG]
