turkey eggs- how often does your turkey lay eggs?
« on: March 18, 2011, 18:33 »
Our turkey, who is aprox 20 months old lays an egg usually every other day.... This week she has excelled herself, we have had 5 eggs this week.  She is a character  one moment she is happy, the next moment demented, she almost knocked me over the other day, boy was she in a bad mood :lol:, i almost fell in a hole that had been dug!

Turkey eggs are so pretty!
Be like a duck. Calm on the surface but always paddling like the dickens underneath.

She lays her egg under an old tree root that was dug up ages ago, just to make it hard for us to get to the egg :lol:  Does anyone else have a turkey laying eggs a d if so, where do they lay their egg?

Don't worry Pamela. I have found a nice picture on the internet which compares a turkey egg to a chicken's egg.

They taste like hens eggs, no different.  They are hard to crack open  though, the membrane is quite tough, i have to cut them with a sharp knife
Pamela
Ps  she laid another egg yesterday, that is 6 eggs in 8 days

my turkeys havent laid any eggs yet but i dont think it will be long as the weather has warmed up abit over the last two days they have been at it like rabbits and one of the hens has made a nest in the corner of the shed! not in the nest box though! so fingers crossed it wont be long.
