    I am new to Turkeys. I have a pair of Turkeys, my turkey hen hatched 6 turkey chicks last month but the condition of chicks was not so good so i separated them from mother and put them with peachicks. After 3 days of separating chicks i have seen the hen is mating with tom. Will she lay again plus kindly tell me their breeding season months. Thank you

    After being broody it can take a few weeks before they will start to lay another clutch, so will lay more than others. Most breed and mate from Spring to Fall.

    Some of mine mated while still caring for the babies. Two of my Narragansett hens are on their second batch, one of the Royal Palm stated laying again, she mated abut two weeks after her babies hatched.
