Hi, this is my first upcoming Spring with turkeys. My 1 free-range tom and 5 hens (Bourbon Reds) have just started their little romancing "dance." Since Spring is around the corner I'm wondering if I need to pen up the turkeys so they will lay eggs in a safe place. I've heard that if you let turkeys free-range lay, they rarely hatch any chicks. Is that true? I'd rather not pen them up since I'd have to build a new pen and I know they'd wonder why they couldn't forage around and fly up to their tree to roost at night anymore... Could I take the turkey eggs I find and relocate them to a pen and put the hen in there for just a short period of time? Anyone with experience of free-ranging turkeys and hatching eggs? Thanks!
