Our Royal Palm Tom turkey really wanted to set on the Bourbon Red hen's eggs, but we didn't think they were fertile so we gave him some chicken eggs and he hatched out 11 of them.

The 11 "cherry egger" chicks follow him all over and he keeps them warm at night and protects them all day around the barnyard.
