    I have a male turkey and he sat on chicken eggs which I eventually removed as he was getting unwell (would not get off to eat or drink). He has been missing for two days and then this morning he came home to eat and quickly disappeared again. I went looking in the paddock and found him hidden in the bush sitting on wild duck eggs! So I have made him up a pen (fox proof I hope) and placed him back on 'his' eggs. It will be interesting to see what happens...to say the least. Going to just love the swimming lessons...lol.
