Are they on free range? I no go lie you, when I started, turkey won't go broody easily, she laidcalmost 100 eggs before she remember to go broody the first time, but now she brood easily after laying few eggs. It got tova time that I started covering her and the eggs with a basket, yet she won't want to stay and will be making a hell of noise, that did not bothered me, after a month of covering her, she hatched few eggs, though I allow her outside once a while, and mind you she broke few eggs about 4, but she finally gave me the result I wanted, and I free her. After 3 weeks, she goes broody herself and now hatch without anyone forcing her, and she hatched.
Other hen learn from her and they do same, but I sold all my Turkey few monthscago when I was broke, I'm now left with a female, she has been laying unfertilized eggs and I have been eating them, just yesterday she went broody, I gave her15 frizzle boiler eggs

Waooo you tried ohhh

Well I will monitor the one i have now
She has two males though I intend eating one make this February

They are in a big cage but comes one once or twice a week because they just like flying around and they like freedom

She has not started squatting down for mating so I will monitor her till she starts squatting for mating

From now till July let me see if she will lay and brood

The previous ones I have I do t eat their eggs because I couldn't imagine myself eating their eggs but my husband eats them my children refuses to eat them as they fell same way I feel for them

But this time around I am my hubby wants her to incubate once she starts laying eggs

Though I want to order for more 5 males now so that I can start feeding them for Christmas


That's what I normally do

I have local fowls too those ones are super as they lay eggs steady and brood as expected though I like using male Noilers to cross the local hens

Where do you normally get your turkeys

Have you tried foreign turkeys and they easy to rear like local turkeys

You have really tried, but since you have local fowl that incubate, thats what you ought to be using for hatching your turkey eggs.
Like myself, I started with 3 poults, I was not ready to rear turkey that time, a man was owing me money, when I noticed he is not ready to pay me, I took 3 turkey poults of about 4 weeks old I saw in his cage, 6 weeks turkey poults was sold 1200-1500 everywhere here in Ondo then, he insist on 3000 cos I have taken them away from him , I take them like that and I feed them till maturity, 1 male and 2 females. That was how I started 3 years ago, since then I have not bought turkey and I have sold more than 300,000 from turkey alone, I mixed eggs for anyone that goes broody eithercturjey of chicken.
I don't have local fowl, I have frizzle boiler, and their mother used to go broody and she hatch too, but she is not a good mother, I brood those chciks myself.


Oh foreign turkey, I have done it twice, very big. They are not easy to brood at day old, but if you can brood them till after six weeks and they survive, you are lucky.
First time I bought 2 and raised them with broilers they both survive, but when they get to 3 months old, I sold them both at 45,000 because I couldn't cope with feeding them. They can finish one bag of feed in 5 days.

But you'll be happy at their weight and height especially the males among them, they are giants, but after 6-7 months old, they tend to crash cos of too much weight, their legs won't be able to carry their weight and they sometimes crash, but if you minimize how you feed them, they may not crash.

I have never bought local turkey oooo, they only one remaining just started going broody yesterday, na chicken egg she sit down dey incubate, after hatching it, I will take the chicks and give her another eggs to hatch

1. White from the frizzle mother too, but not frizzle like other, it is somehow sizzle feather
2. Frizzle mother layed her eggs too, but it was crossed by a local roster,I don't know why the colour is black cos the roster that cross her is not white.
3. Egg layers, one of the baby from the frizzle
4. Eggs layed so far, all fertile eggs, I don chop two from the eggs

I think the best is to acquire a mini local incubator (kerosine, electric or solar)
Because those hatchers are not honest.

I am also searching for a mini incubator. Which will improve hatching of my eggs. And more profit

I don't have problems with my turkey getting broody and sitting on their eggs. In fact I'm surprised at hearing this issue you guys are complaining about. I think what should likely be the problem is lack of suitable egg brooding spot for the birds. Chickens and turkeys like small secluded places where they could have some kind of privacy for laying and hatching eggs. So you need to make such places available for your birds.

My main parent stock turkeys are in an uncompleted building room. The toilet of the room is where they used to lay and hatch. I'd partitioned the space into two so that at least 2 can conveniently brood and hatch at a time. However, after having some nasty experience of 3 of them choosing to use one of the 2 spots to lay and brood together which resulted in a costly mess, I'd stopped allowing them to hatch. What I simply did is to close the door to the toilet and pick the eggs the next morning. At the initial time one still went broody and I'll have to lift it in the morning to remove the eggs. Then I began to monitor and pick the eggs each day, but now even when I pick the eggs the next day, they don't go broody again.

The turkeys that I have outside in semi-free range are getting broody and hatching without issues. Only challenge I do have with them is them laying eggs carelessly in wrong places. Like their sleeping pen, the floor of the outside place where their feeders are and one time they even laid eggs in the open between pineapple stands. I went to find 7 rain soaked eggs.

When they lay in wrong places I keep picking the eggs till they realize that the place is not safe and change (hopefully to designated places or some other place that I find okay to allow them. And to help get them to use designated places, I'll place at least an egg there and sometimes take the hen that is currently laying to show the spot with the egg (if I could identify). They'll most likely learn.

So I believe it's all about a convenient brooding spot for them.

To the best of my knowledge, fowl pox is a viral disease, as such it has no cure. If it doesn't kill the bird, it will just naturally go on it's own after 2 weeks of infecting a bird. The use of medication like I do with the shelf medications you mentioned only helps prevent secondary infections to increase the chance of survival of the bird and possibly also reduce transmission to other birds.

The use of penicillin ointment is a new idea to me which I'll like to try next time to see the outcome.

Lol. If you are sure they are your eggs, just candle them to see for yourself if they were fertile or not. If the eggs were all set at the same time and 3 our of 14 didn't form chicks then it can't be a case of switching off. Take note that you can't always have 100% fertile eggs. If you are dealing with big birds like turkey and broilers, infertile eggs can become more rampant as the birds grow bigger and weightier.

What a lovely thread! I just feel at home here..,

After reading similar turkey thread here, I bought 3 day old turkeys last year Feb. I later killed one and I was left with a male and female. My dear, right now I'm looking for 6wks old buyers. I have about 28 little turkeys for sale. From Day old to 4wks now. The mothers have started crossing again oo..,
3 female Noilers I have had laid more than a crate of fertilized eggs, no hatchery around, so I put about 14 eggs to the turkey to see if they will hatch. The turkeys have hatched but the noiler eggs have not although I didn't put them immediately.
Please I need buyers to convert these to money because their feeding is costing me.. I stay at Kuje, Abuja
