Hi All I've run into an issue with my two royal palm turkey hens. About 2 months back the girls started laying eggs. Initially, neither one cared to do anything more than step on them! Then suddenly, the one hen went broody. We waited to see if she'd come out of it (the eggs aren't fertile as we don't have a Tom). But she stuck it out. So we went into the pen when she was out eating, removed all of her eggs, and essentially "ransacked" her nesting area. Two days later - back at it again. It seems that no matter what we do, she goes back to the same area, lays again, and sits. Now, our second hen has started sitting. I'm getting concerned as neither hen is eating properly, and they no longer leave the coop for free range time. Does anyone think it might be worthwhile to get some young poults for them to raise? I have fertile duck eggs that I'm sure they could hatch from my duck flock, however, I'm not certain they'd raise the ducklings. And I personally worry that allowing them to sit for another month for the eggs to hatch might cause additional strain on their already weakened disposition. Thoughts? Has anyone slipped chicks or poults under them during the night and had success with them raising the babies and getting out of their broody state? Thank you!
