How many eggs can a turkey lay?
Turkeys lay from early spring to early summer, a span of about 4 months. During that time the turkey will lay 12-18 eggs and then sit on them. If you collect their eggs they will continue to lay, eventually producing an average of 1 egg every 2 days for a possible total of 80-100 eggs. Most people who breed turkeys collect the eggs and hatch them to maximize the number of turkey poults produced.

Yes. There is a nest on my farm located in dry grass about 18 inches tall with 16 eggs in the clutch.
1 egg every 2 days
Roughly 1000 eggs The average turkey will lay between 100 and 120 eggs per year and can produce eggs for up to 10 years if well cared for. Production of eggs drops as …the turkey ages.
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.
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 fo…ur 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.
Yes, they do.
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.…
"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 th…ey lay their eggs. Hope that helps.
They can lay 80-100 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 t…heir egg production period which is approximately 25-30 weeks."
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
Yes, female turkeys lay eggs. Turkeys are considered a fowl, which is a bird, and all birds lay eggs.
Turkeys begin to lay their eggs during the spring. They only lay eggs once a year and it's rare that they lay eggs in the fall.
Turkeys live from 3 to 13 years depending on their genetics, diet and disease exposure. How long the hen will continue to lay depends a lot on her genes, diet and environment,… but consider that she will lay some eggs every year until she dies. Some breeds will only lay 30-50 eggs per season if the hen does not go broody, and other breeds can lay up to 180 eggs per season. For every year of age, the number of eggs produced will be smaller.
