    My turkeys are free range one of them is laying her eggs outside but going in the pen at night, once she starts to sit will I be able to move her and the eggs inside?

    My turkey hen was stubborn about where she would sit when brooding on eggs. I tried to move her a couple of times, and she'd go right back to her original spot, if given the chance. I finally just shooed her off the nest, put some of the nesting material and her eggs inside of a carrier, and then set the carrier where her nest had been. She was satisfied with that, and I was able to shut the cage door at night to make sure no other animals were bothering her. When her poults hatched, I moved the carrier up closer to the house and she was fine with it. Good luck.
