Can you use a turkey to hatch a chickens eggs. I have been looking at many different chicken breeds for raising chicks, but then I came across a video of a man from Thailand using a turkey to hatch his chicken eggs. I was wondering if I could get a turkey to hatch a large clutch, but how good of a mother are turkeys? Will they show them how to survive? Or should I stick with using chickens to hatch eggs (I don't really like incubators but I could always do that). And if anyone has suggestions on good chicken mother breeds that would be awesome too.
