    I just want to find out the best way to hatch my turkey eggs weither to allow the turkey hen sit on her eggs or I should take them to hatching house?

    I see that you have already created a thread on New Member Introductions. I will ask the moderators to move you thread to the Turkey forum.

    Best wishes

    I'll love that! Do I post a thread only on a specific issue? I go incubation, artificial insemination of birds and so on. Must I stick to turkey issues only?

    I find it best to start a thread on a specific issue - that way, those who have knowledge of that particular topic can reply more readily - but if issues are related, then I would by happy to include others.

    Turkey thread is best for turkey issues as that's where the turkey keepers are most likely to check so you will get the best chance of good advice.

    My heritage hens can go broody at the drop of a hat.

    Excellent for setting and hatching eggs. But the rearing part is hen specific some are excellent mothers others are a little lacking.

    I take and incubate all the eggs they lay until the incubator is full or I'm overrun with birds.

    Then I let them brood so my egg production will slow down.

    Both ways will work just what you enjoy the best.
