    I want my guinea to hatch her eggs. My turkey keeps laying eggs that are not fertilized in the guinea nest. Should I leave the nest alone or remove the turkey eggs? I don't want my guinea to abandon her nest

    Definitely keep removing the turkey eggs. I assume that your guinea is also laying eggs in the same nest so you would want to leave her eggs there. you may want to make the entrance to the nest small enough that the turkey hen cannot get to the nest otherwise it will just be a case of who goes broody first as to which hen sets the nest.
