    OK , This is the strangest thing I ever seen.
    I have three hen turkeys and one tom.
    well the hens went broody and made 3 nests
    to in a big crateI had and one in the shed
    Well I went to check on my birds and found the tom
    on some eggs , he stole a nest and eggs from a hen.
    She just moved over made another nest by the other
    hen and borrowed some fo her eggs.
    Is this normal or do I have weird birds?[​IMG]

    Sure hope this picture comes up...not real good at this. This was my rooster during the coldest winter we had last January. Not sure if he was helping out or using the baby for body heat!!
