I have a question about my midget white hen. She is not a year old yet, but has gone broody as all get out. She has been missing for the most part for over two weeks. She would magically appear early in the morning sometimes, to eat, and then mysteriously she is gone the next time I look. I figured she had gone broody but could not find her nest. Well, I found it today. I didn't disturb her because if she was sitting on fertile eggs I didn't want to spook her off of them. I thought turkey's didn't start to lay until their second year. I have not actually seen any of her eggs. I wouldn't know what they looked like if I had ever stumbled on them. The tom we had was sold the end of December. I am thinking she is sitting on dud eggs. Of course I don't know how long she was stockpiling eggs either. She's gone this long is there any harm in letting her go and see what comes of it? How long does incubation of turkey eggs take? Are MW's good mothers? She is one devoted bird! I had no idea! She is our lone turkey and is very quiet and docile. Shall I remove these eggs when she isn't there? Can I use her to hatch chicken eggs? I worry about her being eaten by a coyote because her nest is outside of the pen. Advice? Tips? Suggestions?
