Finally! My turkey hens are 10 months old. We have eggs. My DH found a clutch of 10 in the barn last night. I have 6 hens and 2 toms so I hope we start seeing some fertility on these standard bronzes.

Yay - does this mean you are incubating this clutch? Do you incubate turkey eggs the same as chickens or do you need to do things in a different way (as in mist them, increase or decrease humidity) I'm learning lots about chickens but know nothing about turkeys

Same as chickens. These are the first eggs I haven't even cracked one yet to see if there is signs of fertility. If I have fertility I will incubate and have poults available.

Congratulations!!! I hope they're fertile!

We have 2 trios of Royal Palms and a pair of Bourbon Red that are about 9 months along and we're waiting for them to start laying which will be soon I hope

YAY, congrats!!!! Ours (BRs) just started laying too and they're about 80% on fertility already! You could have some of those hatch! Good luck!
