My female Burbon Red went Broody in December at the age of 7 months. I knew from her behavior she was wanting to mate, but I've no Tom turkeys. When she dissapeared I thought she'd gone wild. My Granddaughter founder "Whiskey" nesting in my back yard. She was sitting on 18 eggs. After a couple weeks I tried candling the eggs. Turned out all the eggs were sterile. We've LOTS of wild turkey in the area. Is it likely my hen will mate in the next couple months during the wild turkey mating season? She is also moulting like crazy right now.
