    My Turken was outside yelling her fool head off and ran in the hen house and is nesting. When she first sat down she was still yelling her head off. She has been in there for over 30 minutes and no egg. And she is a TINY turken. I thought she was only about 12 weeks old, but apparently not. She is on the nest where we always find small white eggs.

    Generally a bird will lay an egg once every 24 to 25 hours....

    Or do you mean how long does it actually take to pass the egg?

    Yes, how long from her yelling like a banshe until she lays the egg?
