Thanks Anybrew, I raise Standard Bronze Turkeys, first year, and they are reportedly good mothers, just bad sitters. They tend to break the eggs. We let all the eggs stay in the nest and that was a mistake. Next time we'll do as you have said. The other issue is a small available breeding stock, only some 5000 total in the US. So I am hoping she will lay some wild fertilized eggs. Heres hoping!
