    I have two young turkey hens. They were both laying well until about a week ago. I had been collecting their eggs each day. They have not even layed an egg for about a week now but both continue to set there acting broody. I have been picking them up each day and putting them outside in their pen area but they just end up back in the barn setting. Seems strange though since they have quit laying eggs. They are in good health. One has lost her a patch of her front neck feathers during this last week too. I have had chickens many years but am new to turkeys just starting with them last summer. Any thoughts on my hens behavior?
