My tom has injured my turkey hen by the time she start laying an egg. What can i do?
What kind of injuries? Can she walk? Has she been isolated?
It can walk, the injury does not hurt her flesh, it hurts her skin.
Separate them. She will continue to produce fertile eggs for at a minimum of two weeks. That should represent a clutch large enough that she wil set - that is if your intent is to raise poults. 1 tom with 1 hen presents the possibility for serious injury.
Thank you broady magician. My turkey hen had start broading. Thank you for your consideration.
