    In September, I started raising my absolute first pair of bronze turkeys as pets. They are wonderfully friendly and their personalities can't be beat. What I am wondering is, when will "Gertie" start laying eggs? So far we have had none. Thomas does breed her and they do have their own coop and a fenced enclosure, but no eggs...Could someone please tell when I can expect Gertie to start laying? Thank you in advance for all your help and advice, I greatly appreciate it...

    She should start laying soon. They usually start laying good in March-April. Turkeys like to hide their eggs very well,
