    So what happened is I was driving through the woods in my rhino and saw a whole bunch of feathers on the ground. I got closer and saw was a dead mother turkey :( and a nest of 12 EGGS! I touched one of the eggs and they were still warm! So I went home, got a egg carton, and put the eggs in it. The thing is I just bought a Brinsea mini advance incubator for my 2 ducks but all it holds is 7 eggs so what I did was take the best ones there were and then gave all the other ones to my good friend who has raised chichens before. I gave my friend a pretty badly cracked one and he got curious so he opened it a little and saw a moving chick! So he put it back in his incubator and I put mine In my incubator and just a few minutes ago I watched one pip and have seen many roll. I am so eggcited [​IMG] and will make sure to keep updating! Here are some pictures of the pip and the eggs.

    That is so exciting!

    It is very lucky you were there to save them.

    You'll have to post pictures when they're all fluffed out.

    I will make sure to post pics when they are fluffed! I bought some chicks to put in the brooder with them so they will help the turkeys eat and drink hopefully!

    Be really careful. In the beginning, chickens and turkeys do ok together, but after a while, the turkeys can injure or even kill the chickens.
