What do royal palm turkey eggs look like??

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Maybe that would answer my question, we don't know what the royal palm eggs look like. I have 2 royal palm turkeys, the majority of peeps here think I have 2 hens... we have a white pekin duck laying.. maybe? or are they turkey eggs?? they are white.

TURKEY EGGS ARE A PINKISH COLOR WITH SPOTTING/FRECKLING MARKS ALL OVER THEM, SOME ARE A WHITISH COLOR BUT NOT COMPLETELY WHITE, MAYBE POST A PICTURE THAT WILL HELP MORE THEN A DESCRIPTION.

I was hoping that someone would post a picture of what they have, the eggs we have been picking up are all off white, not speckled. looks like the duck eggs. like yellowish tint to them. big like the duck eggs.

Then you got ducks, turkey eggs are speckled they also have a blunt point and very round on the other end when you see your first turkey egg you will know. duck eggs are waxy turkeys are not

if you want a photo I can get you one yet tonight.

thanks rickihupp! it is not that, looks more waxy like the duck egg. my DH says that turkey eggs break easier than duck eggs too, I don't know but the egg I found is not speckled like yours.
I guess I will check again tomorrow to see if there is another egg and maybe it is my duck. she has started laying again, and I think it is a duck egg. trying to hatch it wouldn't work if it was a turkey egg if I have 2 hens though!!!
thanks again!

The turkey eggs are also more pointed than duck eggs. Duck eggs have a more oval shape.
