Last spring, a neighbor accidentally ran over a wild turkey nest with a tractor mower and killed the hen.. He called us to see if we had an incubator so we could try to hatch out the eggs. We have no incubator, but had a couple of broody hens, so, with the permission of the local game ranger, we collected the eggs and put them under the hens. After several weeks, 2 poults hatched. Once they got old enough, we turned them loose. We thought they'd disappear, but, so far, they are hanging around here. We're really enjoying having the opportunity to watch these beautiful birds up close. I had no idea turkey feathers had such lovely irridescent colors in them. They generally roost on the clothesline posts at night. I expect they will look for a more sheltered spot once the weather gets colder!
