    We are new to raising Narragansett turkeys. They will be 5 months old this month. Just wondering when their breeding season is and what to expect. We had ten total, but one died after a week and we think that one may have been a hen, so we have one hen now and the rest gobblers. We have them separated. We put the hen in a pen with 2 other gobblers and one that we are not sure the sex as it doesn't have the snood that the other have, etc.

    Just need a little guidance on what to expect. Thanks for your input.

    I'm curious about this too. From my research I gather they start late winter to early spring, and If you are lucky they sometimes have a brief season in the fall. I don't really know though, we just got our Narragansetts a few weeks ago. Hopefully someone with Narragansetts will share their experience.My birds have all moulted but one, so I'm hoping for some fall eggs.

    I guess we have no takers on this subject.
