Turkeys lay from early spring to early summer, a span of about 4months. During that time the turkey will lay 12-18 eggs and thensit on them. If you collect their eggs they wil…l continue to lay,eventually producing an average of 1 egg every 2 days for apossible total of 80-100 eggs. Most people who breed turkeyscollect the eggs and hatch them to maximize the number of turkeypoults produced.
The average turkey will lay 110 to 115 eggs in a 28/30 week period.. The gobbler's sperm is stored in the hen's oviduct, so that fertilized eggs may be laid up to four weeks …after mating. One mating is usually sufficient to fertilize an entire clutch. A hen lays an egg nearly every day until her nest contains 8-15 (average, 12; smaller clutches by younger birds), but won't begin incubating constantly until after all eggs are laid.. A hen turkey doesn't begin incubating until she lays the entire clutch of eggs, and incubates it for 28 days so that hatching is synchronized.
i HAVE NO IDEA
Turkeys begin to lay their eggs during the spring. They only layeggs once a year and it's rare that they lay eggs in the fall.
Yes. Turkeys lay nine to fifteen eggs, and incubates them alone. When the young hatch, they stay with the mother until they join up with other hens and their young.
"No. Turkeys can't fly." Wrong answer....turkeys DO fly. They will not lay eggs in a nest in a tree however. They make nests on the ground in thick cover and that is where …they lay their eggs. Hope that helps.

Yes, turkeys are egg layers.
Yes, female turkeys lay eggs. Turkeys are considered a fowl, which is a bird, and all birds lay eggs.
According to North Carolina's agricultural department, "Turkey breeders start to lay eggs for hatching at 32 weeks of age. They are artificially inseminated each week during …their egg production period which is approximately 25-30 weeks."
Most hens (female turkeys) lay a clutch of 12-14 eggs per spring. If a nest is destroyed by a predator, the hen will get bred again, and then lay another clutch of 12-14 eggs.…
In the summer.
Yes. There is a nest on my farm located in dry grass about 18 inches tall with 16 eggs in the clutch.
I have two white female turkeys, hatched this spring. They both started laying eggs at the first of January and have each delivered one egg every other day and sometimes two d…ays in a row. I had read that domestic turkeys average 80 eggs per year and I'll be counting our eggs to see how we rate against the average.
Seems like they are always flying or eating carrion. But Turkey Vultures lay their eggs in Turkey Vulture Nests. North American Turkey Vultures build their nests in caves or s…imple rock indentations and on ground where there is some protection. They commonly do not build nests high up in trees
