We got our first chickens 3 years ago, and put a turkey in with them last summer. We named her Thanksgiving and started feeding her accordingly, giving her lots of fresh greens, good feed,etc. and then she started laying every day. At least one a day, and every 10 days or so, two a day. So we have kept her and wondered why she would lay with no male turkey, and only a rooster and hens in with her. A neighbor said it was pheromones from the rooster. Does anyone know why this happened, and how long she will produce eggs? She has been productive,and saved herself from the chopping block literally She's about 15 lbs. and is a Bronze Breasted Turkey.
