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.
How many eggs do hens lay in 1 day? One per day Some hens lay only one egg every other day. As few as 80 pear year, as much as 300+ per year. Twice in the last year I had …16 hens lay 17 eggs in one day. I could never tell who laid the extra egg, but if she laid the first egg at the break of dawn, and then laid the other before going to roost at night, when I gathered the eggs after "tucking them in" there were 17.
It depends on the breed; a good hardy layer (Rhode Island Red) will lay up to 6 eggs a week! (usually one per day)
One a day or one every other day More info The actual time it takes for a hen to make an egg and lay it is 24 to 26 hours. Then the hen rests about 30 minutes or so before …starting to make another one. In addition to resting about 1/2 hour each time an egg is laid, some hens rest about every 3 to 5 days and others rest about every 10 days. Some hens hardly rest at all. The resting times increase the total time to lay an egg. All that said with the various resting times a hen lays about 5 eggs a week. Or to make it a little easier: 5x52 (weeks) = about 260 eggs a year how much hay does a chicken lay
They can lay 80-100 eggs.
Approximately one per day, depending on the breed and age. Some breeds, such as the Aseel, will only lay one or two eggs each week. As hens get older, they start to lay less o…ften, but lay bigger eggs.
It all depends on the type of chicken. The hybrids that are bred to lay can lay one a day- averaging perhaps 25 a month. Other types, such as silkies, lay 4 or so a week. It a…lso depends on the age of the bird- an older hen will slow down and lay the occasional egg- and may stop altogether before she dies of old age.

No they make nest in the wild. Usually under fallen trees or in thick areas to have some overhead cover. About 1/3 of the hens are killed by coyotes in our area while on the n…est. They try to remain camouflage while a predator is near so for a coyote it just a follow your nose game for them.
If your hen lays on an egg longer than normal but you have no rooster and may have wild turkeys wandering around what does this mean?
Sometimes eggs get extra large, they may even contain two yolks. I don't think you've got a crossbreed.
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.…
Usually hens lay one egg every 25 hours, or just over a day.
One at a time. But about a dozen in a sitting.
