    I have been incubating 12 turkey eggs, the last they laid for the season, so I could raise some turkeys over the winter with my seramas that hatched last week. I was planning on a peaceful brooder full in the basement for at least a month. Well, I look in the incubator this morning and there are 8 nice little turkeys and 1 duck, UGH! one of the duck eggs must have looked like a turkey egg. What am I going to do with one duck!
