Turkeys Started Laying!

Our bronze turkeys started laying yesterday. All 5 hens each laid an egg. It’s funny, it’s like one laid one and then the others said “Oh, I wanna do that!” We brought four eggs in and left one out there so the others might be reminded where to lay. I am leaving eggs sitting out on counter at room temperature until I have enough eggs to fill a small foam incubator. I’m hoping they are all fertile!

    • No you have to have humidity. They will not hatch without. Instead you’re just dehydrating them. Different poultry require different humidity.
