Has anyone else's Turkey Hens Stopped Laying?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have two hens, a BR and a Standard Bronze. Both lovely ladies were laying for a little over a month, and as of the past couple weeks stopped with no apparent signs of laying anymore. Do first year hens tend to lay for a shorter period of time their first spring? I was hoping to incubate some more eggs this spring. :/

My hens started laying early this year. About the first of the year. My slate is still laying but my bourbon quit about 3 weeks ago. They also layer through November last year. I think it's just been a weird year. Where are you in Missouri?

Most turkey hens lay in clutches, than takes breaks between them, so a pattern of laying, than going broody or just not laying for a while is normal. They don't lay like chickens.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Thanks for the information! I'm about an hour north of Springfield.
