    I have a male and female turkey that I let mate and lay eggs. She is laying on her eggs, but I'm not sure what I should do once they hatch. Should I pull them as soon as they hatch and get them in a brooder, or should I let the momma take care of the babies? I have never let any of my chickens or turkeys lay on their eggs, so this is new territory for me!
