    I have a year old Royal Palm Turkey hen in a large pen with various chicken roosters- Aracona, Polish, Silkie, Seabright and Mixed. There are also 8 Guinea hens and 2 roosters that the turkey grew up with. The turkey is laying eggs and I put four in my incubator and wonder if they could be fertile with a chicke-turkey cross or more likely a Guinea turkey cross? Do these interbreed? I put them in two days ago and can candle at ten but I just thought someone might know now.

    Really??
    They won't be fertile!
    Because you don't have a male turkey.

    I'm sorry I should have been more understanding.
    The ggs will not hatch though.
