My turkeys started laying around the end of November. They will be a year old in April. I have a bourbon red who IMMEDIATELY went broody as soon as there was the very first clutch of eggs. I don't think they have a high rate of fertility (the boys are still trying to figure out exactly what to do) but I candled them and some of them had embryos in them. I'm not sure if the hen knows exactly what to do, but she has been faithful to her eggs. We will see if any actually hatch. I was just surprised that such a young gal went broody so fast.
