Our turkey has been sitting on eggs for 2 months or more. She hatched one guinea which we promptly removed. Later, we removed the "dead eggs" and replaced them with chicken eggs (some from the refrigerator) and she's been sitting on them. Today, we got home to find SEVEN babies with her walking around the yard. By some miracle, we corralled her into the coop (everyone is free ranged here and the coop isn't much) and gathered all of the babies. We thought about leaving them, but we just lost our second duckling today. We don't want to lose any of these. Will Snowbird (that's Momma) settle down to the fact that her babies are gone? Will she go back to the nest and sit on more eggs, should they magically appear? Will she stop chasing all the guineas and chickens with whom she was raised? This is all so new to us, I need help! Thanks for anything, Beth Here are the little darlings. They are all from a male (probably Buff Orpington) and different females - Black Australorp, (maybe) Red Six-link, and Americana. Here's the surrogate Momma The Proud Poppa (ok maybe not proud, but busy) THE MOMMAS The Sex-Link, I think This is one Americana girl, Eagle Another Americana Momma, Sticky - she got into the sugar water her 1st day home Here is one of the BA Moms. Well, I tried to resize these, but no luck. Hmmm?
