    What are the chances of turkey eggs hatching if the hen is sitting on them? She has been sitting on them for 5 days now [​IMG][​IMG]

    The chances are real good! As long as she sets, and she's in a nice place where she won't be bothered much, I bet they do hatch, as long as they're fertile.

    Excited for you!

    She is in a safe spot in the coop. I moved them from outside to inside because its safer if she is inside and she was fine with me moving them....she only gets off them to go outside for a minute than goes back and sits on them and I'm pretty sure they are fertile because she
    is with a tom :)...So we shall see what happens[​IMG][​IMG]
