    How long is the average Turkeys laying season? Is there a difference between breeds like Wild and the more domestic turkeys? Please share your experience. Thanks!

    There is a difference in the laying between the varieties. Our Beltsville Small whites outlay all our others combined. Last year our BSW's started laying around Christmas and layed into June/July. The others don't lay as long or as many eggs.

    Mine BRs start laying in late Feb/early March, and will lay and hatch a nest through to September. Several started laying a second nest when they're poults were only 3 weeks old! But generally, it's about 2 nests a summer.
