    We have a few standard bronze hens and toms, and one(pet) BB white , she gets around fine, guessing 2-3 yrs old. The toms don't like her, pick at her to move, she don't show interest in them either. Could it be her age? She hasn't laid any eggs so far either.(bronze have). Thanks

    Broad Breasted Turkeys are bred for meat. Similiar to a cornishX. They were never intended for long life or long egg production.
