    I don't know if this hold true for all turkens. Mine are hatchery birds.

    I just wanted to mention that one out of my three turken pullets is laying now. They are 25 weeks old.

    Her eggs are amazing! Nearly *large* in size already and the most beautiful pinkish tan color. She's only been laying for about a week.

    I've been getting backyard eggs for a couple of years now, but I am certain Ivy's eggs are the prettiest ones I've seen.

    Just a little FYI [​IMG]

    I do not currently have any Turkens, but have had them in the past. They can and do lay a pinkish egg. It really is a very light brown butdoes have that pinkinsh tint.
